The Mathematical World Series features well-written, challenging works that capture the fascination and usefulness of mathematics.In most mathematics textbooks, the most exciting part of mathematics - the process of invention and discovery - is completely hidden from the reader. The aim of Groups and Symmetry is to change all that. By means of a series of carefully selected tasks, this book leads readers to discover some real mathematics. There are no formulas to memorize; no procedures to follow. The book is a guide: its job is to start you in the right direction and to bring yo back if you stray too far.Discovery is left to you.

Squares, hexagons, and triangles
