I like mathematical puzzles (and mathematical humour).

They provide intellectual challenges and mental stimulation. They also help the puzzler to learn and develop good problem-solving techniques. These techniques can sometimes be used when solving strategy problems in real life and can certainly be used in other mathematical pursuits. I have hundreds, and possibly thousands, of puzzles to share with you. This represents a small start!

I have decided to bundle them in groups of twenty:

By far the best educator I have been subject to in my schooling life. Apart from showing me with the utmost clarity the many concepts of mathematics, Graeme has inspired me to better myself in everything that I do in school and in my life. His dedication to his craft is truly admirable, and this level of dedication to helping the student achieve is something that is extremely hard to find. If you’d want anyone on your side during HSC mathematics, it’d be Graeme.
