AIMS & SCOPE
The Journal of Recreational Mathematics is intended to fulfill the
need of those who desire a periodical uniquely devoted to the lighter side
of mathematics. No special mathematical training is required. You will
find such things as number curiosities and tricks, paper-folding creations,
chess and checker brain-teasers, articles about mathematics and mathematicians,
discussion of some higher mathematics and their applications to everyday
life and to puzzles solving. You'll find some occasional word games and
cryptography, a lot to do with magic squares, map-coloring, geometric dissections,
games with a mathematical flavor, and many other topics generally included
in the fields of puzzles and recreational mathematics.
The Journal of Recreational Mathematics is ideally suited for
use in any extracurricular math activity in high-school or junior college.
Its non-textbook approach will clarify in a recreational form many of the
abstract concepts wrestled with in formal classroom situations. The Journal
is tailor-made for anyone fascinated by numbers and number phenomena, from
seemingly simple arithmetic to involved calculus. The Journal of Recreational
Mathematics, a journal that is thought provoking and stimulating—offers
everyone interested in math a never-ending parade of the exciting side
of mathematics. Join your fellow math enthusiasts and subscribe to this
truly international Journal, with both subscribers and contributors
from over 25 countries throughout the world.
