Maths Fun » Beauty of Maths

Do you know what a mathematical palindrome is? It’s a number that’s read the same backwards and forwards. Palindromes date back over 2000 years and are found in math and poetry. The Beauty of Mathematics is that it can be used to form some amazing pictures that are made up only of numbers that read the exact same both directions. These exercises will give you some great tools where multiplication and addition is used to form some very interesting palindromes as well as sequences and it’s sure that none of your friends know about these really cool maths.

Know the secrets of the beauty of mathematics and you can have a lot of fun with mathematics when you know these great tricks that are found in palindromes and sequences. When you understand why math is so cool, you’ll understand the beauty of mathematics!
