|Interactive Mathematics Miscellany and Puzzles, Alexander Bogomolny|
|A page that looks into different ways a specific statement may be related to a more general one. Pairs of statements in which: one is a clear generalization of another, whereas in fact the two are equivalent; one is a clear generalization of another and the more general statement is easier to prove; a more general is directly implied by a more specific one. Problems that allow a meaningful generalization; problems that allow more than one generalization; a few examples where attempts to generalize lead one astray.|
