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.  In this, his centennial year, 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!
