Review

'Ross Honsberger's love of mathematics comes through very clearly in From Erdös to Kiev. He presents intriguing, stimulating problems that can be solved with elementary mathematical techniques. It will give pleasure to motivated students and their teachers, but will also appeal to anyone who enjoys a mathematical challenge.' L'Enseignement Mathématique

'The publication of every new volume in The Dolciani Mathematical Expositions of the Mathematical Association of America is an important event ... This book is recommended to teachers, students and everyone, who enjoy the fun and games of problem solving and have the opinion that asking and answering problems is what keeps a mathematician young in spirit.' Acta. Sci. Math.

Book Description

This is an intriguing collection of challenging problems with solutions that use straightforward arguments from elementary mathematics with only the occasional foray into sophisticated or advanced ideas. The problems included in this collection are taken from geometry, number theory, probability, and combinatorics. Solutions to the problems are included.

By Pablo T. Ortiga on August 24, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved the way the problems enticed me to solve from the point of view of the author Ross Honsberger. Hard problems yes, but presented with such clarity I do not have difficulty to relate to my students and I can readily remember the procedure and algorithm of the approach. I love this book, the way the author relate the topics and though skimpy solutions.
