EASIER THAN YOU THINK...

Puzzles and Humour

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:

CCM Puzzle Collection #001 ~ Puzzles 001-020

  • Three Switches and a Light
  • A Knockout Tennis Competition
  • Covering a Modified Chessboard With Dominoes
  • Completing a Tour of Towns
  • Packing Eight Numerals Into Eight Squares
  • Counting the Number of Pathways to a Given Place
  • A Matter of Symmetry
  • Which Shape is MOST Different?
  • Riding a Falling Ladder
  • Divide an Obtuse-Angled Triangle into Seven Acute-Angled Triangles
  • Divide a Square into Ten Acute-Angled Triangles

 

My son isn’t rapt about attending tutoring but Graeme has taken the time find out the things my son is interested in and relate the maths topics to them.  I can’t speak highly enough of his patient, calming manner.  The maths resources provided have been helpful (and sometimes fun!) in my son’s learning and I have noticed a great improvement in his confidence and ability since starting tutoring.
