That puzzle-book chestnut (so autumnal!) “count the triangles within the triangle” has twice stared me in the face rather unexpectedly in the last couple of weeks: under my coffee on a table on a Grand Central train from King's Cross to York:
and on a poster (from Atomic Printworks) that now hangs above my desk…eyes up this time, not down.
Have you seen a maths puzzle where you least expected to?
If you have a thought-inducing picture, please send a copy (ideally, about 1-2Mb) to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Secondary Magazine Eyes Down’ in the email subject line. Include a note of where and when it was taken, and any comments on it you may have. If your picture is published, we’ll send you a £20 voucher.
