Mathematical Adventures for Students and Amateurs
David F. Hayes, Tatiana Shubin, Gerald L. Alexanderson, Peter Ross
Mathematical Association of America, 2004 - Mathematics - 291 pages
This is a partial record of the Bay Area Math Adventures (BAMA), a lecture series for high school students (and incidentally their teachers, parents, and other interested adults) hosted by San Jose State and Santa Clara Universities in the San Francisco Bay Area. These lectures are aimed primarily at talented high school students and as a result, the mathematics in some cases is far from what one would expect to see in talks at this level. There are serious mathematical issues addressed here. The authors are distinguished mathematicians; some are bright newcomers while others have been well known in mathematical circles for decades. We hope that this book will capture some of the magic of these talks that have filled auditoriums at the host schools almost monthly for several years. Join the students in sharing these mathematical adventures.
