Japanese mathematic school books explain the Tower of Hanoi. Our Tower of Hanoi toy is loved by everyone, children and adults.
Students use this Tower as a model for their PC programming. A joy for puzzle and riddle loving kindergardeners. Small infants love moving the pieces around, over and over. Such a mathematical challenge. Kindergardeners and elementary school kids have fun competing with their parents. Tiny kids are entranced as they play with the brightly coloured rings. The wooden rings clang together in an almost musical way. Just be sure to take care with the smallest ring, it could be popped into someone's little mouth.
Move all coloured rings from the Black rod to the other rods.
1. Rings must be moved one per turn.
2. A big ring cannot be placed on a smaller ring.
3.The rings cannot be placed anywhere but on the rods.
|TOWER OF HANOI EXCERPT FROM WIKIPEDIA|
|The puzzle was invented by the French mathematician Édouard Lucas in 1883. There is a legend about an Indian temple which contains a large room with three time-worn posts in it surrounded by 64 golden disks. Brahmin priests, acting out the command of an ancient prophecy, have been moving these disks, in accordance with the rules of the puzzle, since that time. The puzzle is therefore also known as the Tower of Brahma puzzle. According to the legend, when the last move of the puzzle is completed, the world will end. It is not clear whether Lucas invented this legend or was inspired by it.
If the legend were true, and if the priests were able to move disks at a rate of one per second, using the smallest number of moves, it would take them 264−1 seconds or roughly 585 billion years or 18,446,744,073,709,551,615 turns to finish.
