About the Authors
  • Flexagons, paper models that can be bent in different ways to change their shape, are easy to make and work in surprising ways. This book contains numerous diagrams that the reader can photocopy and use to construct a variety of fascinating flexagons. The author also explains the mathematics behind these amazing creations. Although knowledge of the technical details requires a mathematical background, the models can be made and used by anyone. Flexagons appeals to all readers interested in puzzles and recreational mathematics.

    • Cut-out-and-make models of flexagons can be made and enjoyed by anyone
    • Explains the mathematics behind flexagons

    "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
