    A Mathematical Orchard
    Book Description:

    A collection of 208 challenging, original problems with carefully worked solutions. In addition to problems from The Wohascum County Problem Book, there are about 80 new problems, many of which involve experimentation and pattern finding. Most of the book is devoted to presenting instructive, clear, and often elegant solutions. For many problems, multiple solutions are given. Appendices list the prerequisites for individual problems and arrange them by topic.
