    The year 2018 is the37th year of the Mathematics Calendar.  It comes with its exciting topics, graphics and mind-boggling problems, this calendar continues to be a hit with teachers, students, engineers, math buffs and puzzle lovers. It's more than a calendar­­ each month features an intriguing math topic and each day a tantalizing problem­­ it's a treasure trove of information, games, puzzles and stories, illustrating how mathematics influences, touches, and impacts our lives. It is uniquely desgned so that each day of every month has a problem whose solution is the date. The brain twister lies in figuring how to arrive at the answer. For each month the problems range from arithmetic to calculus. The 2019 calendar will be the farewell calendar for Theoni Pappas.  It will be both a retrospective of some topics combined with new updated and expanded math themes.


THE MATHEMATICS CALENDAR has given thousands of people a new perspective about math ­ how it can be fun, fascinating & intriguing. It's no wonder its popularity continues to grow.


The 12 monthly topics feature exciting topics which remind us again and again how mathematics describes nature, impacts the sciences, is essential to architecture, is inseparable from music, influences the arts, exercises and tantalizes the mind with its puzzles and problems, stimulates and creates new technologies, and reveals the multi-dimensions of our world and universe through its ever evolving ideas and insights.
