Knot: New Ideas about Knots. Tangled up pictures of tangled up ropes; Knot coloring puzzles; Knots and counting; Pretzel knots.
Prob and Puzz: Problems inspired by math books (ex.: Instant insanity; Penrose rhombs) and by friends (ex: Bike-Ped, Idaho - also known as Muddy City).
Persons Involved: Nancy Casey, firstname.lastname@example.org is the author of MegaMath.
Groups and levels they aim to serve:
- Instant Insanity is a puzzle involving building cubes and Penrose Rhombs asks users to try to tile the plane with Penrose Rhombs. Both come with "ready-to-go" photocopy masters for making your own set of figures.
- Her knot page is a friendly presentation of what she recently learned about knot theory, including references.
- Clever Games for Clever People" are taken from John Conway's book On Numbers and Games
