Abstract

Happy numbers were first introduced to me through the Holl Mini-Workshop for MSM students at Iowa State University. The presenter, Leslie Hogben, led our group in an exploration of happy numbers that invoked our curiosities and led to many interesting discoveries. While happy numbers do not seem to have a practical application (that I’ve discovered at least), they are an enjoyable recreational math concept.
