is Archimedes Laboratory Project
Archimedes-lab.org is a free, independent and collaborative educational
project. The website is supervised by a consulting network of experts
in online education.
The main goal of Archimedes' Lab is to show mathematics
in a different light and to make it accessible and enjoyable to everyone
through original visual puzzles and games. The site walks visitors
through various problem solving strategies and discoveries in the
world of recreational mathematics.
Limited parts of the site are offered in French, Italian, Spanish
and German. But regular puzzle features like the Puzzle of the
the Sunday Puzzle and the Puzzle of the Month are available in three
languages: English, French and Italian.
Among the proposed educational tools and tutorials, visitors will
find intuitive visuals, number games, puzzles with downloadable pieces,
perception puzzles and interactive optical illusions. A principal
objective throughout the site is the enhancement of critical thinking
skills and the development of creativity.
How was Archimedes Laboratory born?
We form, my husband Gianni and I, Marie-Jo, an eccentric couple of
authors with a big passion for: logic and mathematic games, perceptive
brainteasers, and cheese. Together we can be engaged in endless discussions
about book and game projects, even when we go out for dinner. Sometimes,
the paper tablecloths at our favorite restaurants turn into a kind
of ‘Lascaux Cave’ in two dimensions, decorated with essential
graffiti, Paleolithic signs casually left for the intention of generations
of onlookers or curious minds who will maybe see in those scribbles
a flash of intelligence. It is said that the body contains enough
carbon to manufacture 900 pencils. Fortunately, we never had to dip
into our personal carbon supply for designing new puzzles and games
for children and adults alike… It is out of these discussions
that sprang the idea of sharing our passion with the world. And so
the project Archimedes Lab was born.
Yes, curating a huge website and inventing puzzles and games every
day is not exactly restful, but to know that in every time zone of
the world there is at least one happy person playing with one of
our creations is really the most beautiful gratification!
