The problems vary in their difficulty, but are all intended to encourage independent investigation, to demonstrate different approaches to problem-solving, and to illustrate some of the famous problems that famous mathematicians have attempted to solve. For each problem the author has provided hints and a detailed discussion of their solution. Consequently, the book will provide a valuable teaching resource for schools, teacher training, and university mathematics courses.
