M.C. Escher is a widely known and popular artist whose work depicts complex, and often impossible, geometrical patterns. This Web site examines the mathematics behind his drawings. Many examples of Escher's work are given, illustrating mathematical principles such as the shape and the logic of space. Tessellations and polyhedra are common building blocks of the drawings. It is quite interesting to see how basic designs are transformed into the intricacies depicted by Escher. The material is cert

Office for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education
The Office for Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has an impressive collection of Java lessons and curriculum resources for learning about these topics. The office was established to serve as a model-builder for innovative, standards-based, technology-intensive mathematics and science instruction at the K-16 levels. Most of the lessons focus on geometry, statistics, or algebra; but there are also some that cover science concepts. The

This online activity offers students a chance to compare soda prices from two stores using data displayed on a scatter plot graph. Students are shown how the line y = x can be used to analyze the data and draw a conclusion. The activity is one of 80 mathematical challenges featured on the Figure This! web site, where real-world uses of mathematics are emphasized. The activity contains a solution hint, two different ways to find the solution, questions related to analyzing similar data from other

With this online activity, students explore the classic mathematics map-coloring question known as the four-color problem. Students must determine the minimum number of colors needed to color a map so that entities sharing a border have different colors. Initially, students investigate the minimum number of colors necessary to color a map of states west of the Mississippi River. The activity's Getting Started section suggests coloring the states in a specific order. The Solution page uses odd an

This activity opens with a scenario in which a rack of clothing, originally on sale for thirty percent off the original price, has been discounted by an additional fifty percent. Students are challenged to determine if the new price is actually eighty percent of the original price. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 real world math challenges, demonstrates that understanding percentages is important for making decisions based upon survey results, interest rates, and medical

This activity challenges students to develop an algorithm to find the day of the week on which they were born. An algorithm is described as a step-by-step routine for solving a problem. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world, notes how algorithms are used by scientists, factory workers, and chefs. The hint shows students that, for any date, the day of the week changes from one year to the next. Students are reminded to consider

Science identifies speed as a ratio (distance over time). When combined with human innovation, speed can be applied exponentially. Speed is COSI's (Center of Science and Industry) newest traveling exhibit that examines the way in which speed impacts our lives. Speed has become blended and blurred into complex human desires to fall faster, to drop farther, and to climb higher. This website will demonstrate how speed touches our world.

Logic for Computer Science: Foundations of Automatic Theorem Proving
This book is intended as an introduction to mathematical logic, with an emphasis on proof theory and procedures for constructing formal proofs of formulae algorithmically. This book is designed primarily for computer scientists, and more generally, for mathematically inclined readers interested in the formalization of proofs, and the foundations of automatic theorem-proving. The book is self contained, and the level corresponds to senior undergraduates and first year graduate students. However,
