Can You Solve My Problems? Pi Day Giveaway!

It’s the sweetest mathematical day of the year! Pi Day is the celebration of the Greek symbol Π, the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant—the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter—which is approximately 3.14159… Some celebrate by baking pies in the shape of Π, but here at the Experiment we celebrate by doing a book giveaway!

Bestselling math author Alex Bellos’ latest book Can You Solve My Problems? is a puzzle lover’s dream with over 125 of the world’s best brainteasers from the last two millennia.

Armed with logic alone, you’ll detect counterfeit coins, navigate river crossings, and untangle family trees. Then—with just a dash of high school math—you’ll tie a rope around the Earth, match wits with a cryptic wizard, and use four 4s to create every number from 1 to 50. (It can be done!)

If you loved Bellos’ two math coloring books, Patterns of the Universe and Visions of the Universe, you will rejoice at his latest book that makes math and logic puzzles fun!
