More Fallacies, Flaws & Flimflam
By Edward J. Barbeau
More Fallacies, Flaws, and Flimflam is the second volume of selections drawn mostly from the College Mathematics Journal column "Fallacies, Flaws, and Flimflam" from 2000 through 2008. The MAA published the first collection, Mathematical Flaws, Fallacies, and Flimflam, in 2000.
As in the first volume, More Fallacies, Flaws, and Flimflam contains items ranging from howlers (outlandish procedures that nonetheless lead to a correct answer) to deep or subtle errors often made by strong students. Although some are provided for entertainment, others challenge the reader to determine exactly where things go wrong. Items are sorted by subject matter. Elementary teachers will find chapter 1 of most use, while middle and high schoolteachers will find chapters 1, 2, 3, 7, and 8 applicable to their levels. College instructors can delve for material in every part of the book.
There are frequent references to the College Mathematics Journal; these are denoted by CMJ.
