Spare time brain teasers
Hello everyone. I'm here because I have a good interest in Math/Physics but I'm struggling to find things to solve when I have spare time at work.
At work I get a lot of free time away from a Computer, So I get bored very easily.
My main question is asking you guys if there are any Math related topics I can sit down and do on paper that will get my brain thinking but also pass some time.
I don't want to prepare some Algebra equations then solve them one after another, This is too easy and boring. I would like to come up with something new, Like work a way around a problem using Algebra. I'm not an expert in Math, but just wondering If there are any ideas you guys have that will make me sit for a while and do something.
So yeah, If you have anything I could learn without the aid of books/computer or whatever. Just paper and pen. Then please let me know cause Work is boring as hell lol.
Thanks
Matt

Why not mosey on down to the puzzles and math challenge section of this website to keep yourself occupied?

If you find an interesting puzzle on the internet, you can always print it out or write it down, then work on it on paper.

Khan Academy
this website has a section with some really good puzzles. you can also buy a book of puzzles. i have one called "power puzzles" (though i haven't used it much at all)
