The AMS Department currently has the following openings

Math/Stat Moments

Martin Gardner (1914-2010)

Martin Gardner (1914 - 2010)

No Mathematical Moments would be complete without a discussion about Martin Gardner.  His Scientific American "Mathematical Games" columns, which ran from 1956 to 1981, are probably responsible for many of us being mathematicians.  Last year was his centennial year, so it is only appropriate to include some links to his works.


1. The Top Ten Martin Gardner Scientific American Articles

2. Can You Solve a Puzzle Unsolved Since 1996?

3. Articles Alluded to in "Let the Games Continue"

4. Three Puzzles from Martin Gardner (1914-2010)

Need more Hexaflexagon discussions?  Check out the latest e-book available here

Thanks for everything Martin!

Spotlight on AMS

Congratulations to Mike Nicholas

A big Congratulations! to Professor Mike Nicholas (he's the one on the left) who was recently honored by the Blue Key, Order of Omega and Tau Beta Pi Honor Societies with receipt of the Distinguished Faculty.

'Dr. Nick', as he is affectionately known by his students, has a  positive reputation which extends well beyond our department.  If you ever have a chance to take one of his classes, jump at it!  They will probably fill quickly.

Congratulations Mike on this well deserved honor!
