Book Description:

Flexagons are paper models that can be flexed in different ways to change their shape. They are easy to make and work in surprising ways. This book contains numerous diagrams that the reader can photocopy and use to constuct a variety of fascinating flexagons. Alongside this, the author also explains the mathematics behind these amazing creations. The technical details would require a mathematical background but the models can be made and used by anyone. Flexagons bring maths to life and will appeal to anyone interested in puzzles or recreational maths.

Review:

"Flexagons Inside Out is a thorough and comprehensible work on the mathematical structure of flexagons...The author intended the material in this book to be at the recreational mathematics level, and he certainly succeeds in his goal. There is ample mathematical content to satisfy readers at nearly any level, however Pook also keeps the text readable and easy to follow."
Math Horizons

"The most extensive and thorough study of flexagons available." Mathematical Association of America, Robert McGuigan

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Flexagons are hinged polygons that have the intriguing property of displaying different pairs of faces when they are flexed. Workable paper models of flexagons are easy to make and entertaining to manipulate. Flexagons have a surprisingly complex mathematical structure and just how a flexagon works is not obvious on casual examination of a paper model. Flexagons may be appreciated at three different levels. Firstly as toys or puzzles, secondly as a recreational mathematics topic and finally as the subject of serious mathematical study. This book is written for anyone interested in puzzles or recreational maths. No previous knowledge of flexagons is assumed, and the only pre-requisite is some knowledge of elementary geometry. An attractive feature of the book is a collection of nets, with assembly instructions, for a wide range of paper models of flexagons. These are printed full size and laid out so they can be photocopied. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780521525749
