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:

Graeme’s approach to explaining maths formulas made it easy for my children to grasp.  Graeme had a number of methods by which he could explain each problem, giving the students a clear understanding of how to approach each area of maths.  My students came away feeling confident of when, and how to apply each formula to solve the maths problems.
