Journal of Mathematics and the Arts Outstanding Paper Award

About the prize

The 2018 Outstanding Paper Award for the Journal of Mathematics and the Arts has been decided!

The award goes to Doris Schattschneider for her paper “Marjorie Rice and the MAA tiling.” You can find this winning paper, as well as those shortlisted for the award, below and read with free access available from this page.

The 2018 Prize Committee commented:

"This paper appealed to me in many many ways: the story of a non-mathematician who devised her own mathematical notation to analyze tiling shapes and discover new ones is inspiring. It resonated even more with me that this untrained mathematical talent belonged to a woman. The explanation, with some of Marjorie Rice’s original diagrams, and the story of the sequence of events, led a historical character to the paper. I had heard of Rice before but hadn’t realized the extent to which she really attacked the tiling problems as a mathematician."
