Hidden Math Crossword

(The contest is now closed. Congratulations to Rebecca W. and Carly R.  Rebecca will receive an Intel web computer and Carly will receive chocolate from L. A. Burdick. Thanks to all who tried this crossword. We hope it was enjoyable.)


Sometimes it takes a little work to find the math. In the completed crossword grid, find 8 singular nouns with mathematical meaning. Each of the 8 mathematical terms has at least 5 letters, appears horizontally, and is split by a single black square. Send these 8 mathematical terms along with your contact information to girlsanglepuzzler “at” gmail.com. We will randomly draw from the correct answers received by midnight on October 1, 2013 to select a “winner” and send the winner a small prize. Girls’ Angle members will be put into a separate pool and have a chance to win an Intel web computer.
