Synopses & Reviews
Traditional magic squares employ a chessboard-like arrangement of numbers in which the total of all rows, columns, and diagonals add up to the same number. This innovative approach by a Dutch engineer challenges puzzlists to think two dimensionally by replacing numbers with colorful geometric shapes. Dozens of creative puzzles, suitable for ages 12 and up.
This innovative approach to magic squares challenges puzzlists to think two dimensionally by employing colorful geometric shapes instead of numbers. Dozens of creative puzzles, suitable for ages 12 and up.
This innovative work by a British engineer initiates a Copernican revolution in our understanding of magic squares by replacing numbers with two-dimensional forms. The result is not merely a novel kind of geometrical magic square but a revelation that traditional magic squares are now better seen as the one-dimensional instance of this self-same geometrical activity.
