Synopsis

Mathematics Galore! Masterclasses, Workshops and Team Projects in Mathematics and its Applications by Christopher Budd, C. J. Sangwin

This book is a series of self-contained workshops in mathematics which aim to enthuse and inspire young people, their parents and teachers with the joy and excitement of modern mathematics. Written in an informal style, each chapter describes how novel mathematical ideas relate directly to real life. The chapters contain both a description of the mathematics and its applications together with problem sheets, their solutions and ideas for further work, project and field trips. Topics include; mazes, folk dancing, sundials, magic, castles, codes, number systems, and slide rules. This book will be accessible to young people from age thirteen upwards and yet contains material which should stretch the brightest students.

Whether you are a teacher in a junior or secondary school this book offers some interesting starting points in areas of mathematics not normally covered in the standard school curriculum ... the author's style is very engaging. Mathematics TODAY As Obi-Wan Kenobi said about the Light Sabre in Star Wars,
