Banner scanned from Pie Magazine

The purpose of this site is to share a collection of old Mathematical Pie magazines with students and teachers of Mathematics, or anyone else who has an interest in the subject. These magazines contain a diverse selection of articles and puzzles relating to Mathematics, and issue Number One appeared in 1950. But, of course, the subject is timeless!

Click here for full size original imageFor those of you who are familiar with the magazine, and how it used to print the continuous decimal places of π at the bottom of each page - you will see that issue Number 18 has the start of the number 'π = 3.14159 .....'! Click on the image to the right to see the original scan of that issue.

I am grateful to a number of people over the last few years who have contributed magazines that have now brought the collection up to over 100 issues. They include Bernard Cook, who gave to me the initial selection of old issues, whilst we were colleagues in the Mathematics Department of the local F.E. college. Others subequently filled in the gaps, or supplied better copies, they include Paul Weighill, Louise Grogan, Rob Cairns, Guy Martland, Malcolm Drewett, and John Nicholson whose contribution took the collection up to issue 102.

I am now in the process of upgrading the site to include pdf files of the magazines. This will facilitate better reading of the magazines. For each issue click on 'Print Booklet' to open Adobe Acrobat Reader, then with A4 paper and judicious forethought you can produce the A5 booklet copy of the magazine.

My thanks, also, to Nigel Collins, son of Roland Collins, one of the founders of the magazine back in 1950. You can see the details, supplied by Nigel, relating to the history of the publication by clicking on the links below.
