Erik Demaine and Martin Demaine's Puzzles:

CSAIL Annual Meeting 2010 Puzzle

In what has become a regular event, Erik Demaine and Martin Demaine give out puzzles each year at our lab's Annual Meeting. Here is the 2010 edition.

This puzzle is inspired by a puzzle “Ducks in a Row, No. 2” by Chris Maslanka, which was distributed as an exchange gift at the 9th Gathering for Gardner (G4G9).

Rules

There are four puzzles, one for each logo/image/message (CSAIL logo, MIT logo, beaver silhouette, P=NP). In each puzzle, your goal is to fold the square puzzle down to a 1 × 4 row with four matching images.

Printing Notes

The puzzle was designed for color printing, but it will work fine on a black-and-white printer.

The PDF file is the best combination of printing quality and small file size. In either case, you need a suitable viewer. Alternatively, you can print one of the images. If you can print images scaled to fit, use 150dpi. Otherwise, use 72dpi.
