Mathematical Challenges: Puzzles and Problems in Secondary School Mathematics.
The problems in this book were originally given in competitions open to high school students in and around the Merseyside area of north-west England. For the competition from which the problems here were taken, students were given about ten days in which to tackle a sheet of six problems. The chief aim was to give them an opportunity to think deeply about mathematical problems over a period of time, applying knowledge and techniques learned at school, and then to write out solutions in their own words.
