- Variations of the tiling problem. AKIYAMA, JIN; NAKAMURA, GISAKU // Teaching Mathematics & its Applications;Mar2000, Vol. 19 Issue 1, p8
The usual tiling problem determines which polygons can be used to cover the plane exactly without overlaps or gaps. We consider two variations of that problem. The first attempts to determine polygons that can tile the plane by reflections as in a kaleidoscope. The second determines polygons...
- Magic Domino Squares -- 6. Zulauf, A.; Stokes, B. // New Zealand Mathematics Magazine;Aug2008, Vol. 45 Issue 2, p32
The article discusses several mathematical problems and solutions related to magic domino squares. One example provided focuses on finding a four by four domino square with a magic sum other than five. Other examples include finding magic domino squares having dimensions other than four by four,...
- Cooking the Classics. Stewart, Ian // Mathematical Intelligencer;Mar2011, Vol. 33 Issue 1, p61
The article focuses on solving mathematical puzzles. According to Martin Gardner, a famous mathematician, when a mathematical puzzles is encountered to contain a flaw such as having no answer and having more than one answer, the puzzle is said to be "cooked." The author presents mathematical...
- The Problem of Malfatti: Two Centuries of Debate. Andreatta, Marco; Bezdek, Andr�s; Boronski, Jan // Mathematical Intelligencer;Mar2011, Vol. 33 Issue 1, p72
The article focuses on the problem raised by Gianfrancesco Malfatti, an Italian mathematician, in 1983 also known as "Malfatti's Problem." According to the author, the problem was how to pack three non-overlaping circles having a maximum total area in a triangle. The authors provide their own...
