A Periodic Table of Polyform Puzzles
Kate Jones defines, illustrates and describes 12 different types of polyform puzzles, in quaint rhyming couplets of verse, showing the mathematical progression from the singularity to open-ended growth. Polyominoes, polyiamonds, polyhexes, polytans, polyrounds, polyhops, polybends, polyocts, polyores, polyrhombs and polyrombiks are included in this purview, showing some beautiful arrangements of each set. It concludes with musings upon how mathematics is the heart of the Universe.
