Farewell!

Watch Yossi Elran summarise the course

So! We have reached the end of the course. I would like encourage you to join one of the many groups around the world that are active in recreational math and puzzles. A good place to start is the worldwide celebration of mind activities in honor of the late Martin Gardner. Alexander Bogomolny’s wonderful cut-the-knot website is a wonderful place to learn a vast number of recreational math topics and there are many other wonderful sites as well.

We also plan on offering more courses like this on FutureLearn so please, do stay tuned. The Weizmann Institute of Science through its educational arm, the Davidson Institute of Science Education sees as its mission to bring math and science to the public.
Here is a full list of the Weizmann Institute’s courses.

Finally, if you’ve liked this course and are game for more puzzles, you might be interested in The Paper Puzzle Book which I wrote with fellow origamist Ilan Garibi and Puzzle maker David Goodman.

Thank you!

Thank you for being with me and enduring the whole course!
