## Recreational Mathematics Links

These are some of my favourite sites on recreational mathematical
topics. They should be of special interest to anyone doing our
module MM2010 Nature of Maths, and hopefully to a lot of other people too.

I'll start with some lists of recreational maths links
created by other people :

Mathematical
Games, Toys and Puzzles (by Jeff Erickson)

Interactive
Mathematical Games and Puzzles (by Alexander Bogomolny)

Recreational
Mathematics (by David Eppstein)

Combinatorial Game

Number

Nick's Mathematical Miscellany
(by Nick Hobson), including a large variety of mathematical
puzzles

Next some on specific topics :

The Great Internet Mersenne

known primes
