Hee, hee, hee!

I'm having soooo much fun with this!    ;-)


It's the 2005 Mathematics Calendar. Each day is a math problem ... where the 
answer is the date of the month. (e.g. September 1st ... "Number of edges on 
a Mobius strip")

Lots of fun for the whole family! ... (well okay - maybe not) ... but there 
are some neat arithmetic problems involving Mayan numerals [1], Babylonian 
numerals, Greek, Roman, Chinese script, even Chinese rod numerals and 
Egyptian fractions! Some probability theory. Some logarithms. Some graph 
theory. ... a little bit of lots of stuff!

Great Fun! And a very handy addition to any office! ... I've already chased 
two co-workers away with mine!!


Sadly ... the answers are included ... that's a shame ... it would be much 
more fun without them ... "Okay, I'll get back to you by the (smallest odd 
prime factor of 7429)th!" ...
