|Cut the Knot!, Alexander Bogomolny, with Don Greenwell|
|A hypercube is a multidimensional analogue of a 3-dimensional cube in that each coordinate of a point in a hypercube is restricted to the same 1-dimensional (line) segment. The Tesseract is a 4-dimensional hypercube. With an applet designed to demonstrate the inductive construction of the tesseract, and a related Moebius strip problem. An interactive column for MAA Online that uses a Java applet to simulate a puzzle or mathematical problem, one not stated directly since the applet is intended to be such that the right answer to an as yet unstated problem should be easy to surmise.|
