Dr Ecco is a mathematical wizard who uses logic and computer programming to solve crimes, find treasures and explore space. This work records the latest exploits and misadventures of Dr Ecco, renowned Private Investigator. The puzzles require no formal background beyond arithmetic and elementary algebra, just curiosity and keen intelligence. With 36 illustrated cases organized around eight major mathematical themes, this book should encourage readers to use their minds and their computers in ways they never previously imagined.
