The Surprise Attack in Mathematical Problems

In our book, Ingenious Mathematical Problems and Methods (Dover Publications,
Inc., New York, 1959), on page 116, we show two interesting devices, one
geometric and one algebraic, which do a fairly good job of shortening the task.

Martin Gardner's Mathematical Games columns in Scientific American inspired and entertained several generations of mathematicians and scientists. Gardner in his crystal-clear prose illuminated corners of mathematics, especially recreational mathematics, that most people had no idea existed. His playful spirit and inquisitive nature invite the reader into an exploration of beautiful mathematical ideas along with him. These columns were both a revelation and a gift when he wrote them; no one--before Gardner--had written about mathematics like this. They continue to be a marvel. This volume, first published in 1979, contains columns published in the magazine from 1968-1971. This 1992 MAA edition contains a foreword by Donald Knuth and a postscript and extended bibliography added by Gardner for this edition.
