That’s why I love The Complete Book of Fun Maths: 250 Confidence-Boosting Tricks, Tests and Puzzles by Philip Carter. It’s full of tests and puzzles that challenge you with different levels of lateral thinking problems, geometric puzzles, fun number tricks and logic puzzles.
What sets this book apart from many other math activity books is the variety of problems and tests that are provided. I have a tendency to tire of books that have a hundred versions of the same thing over and over again. I like to be challenged in different ways. The Complete Book of Fun Maths totally delivers.
Along with the puzzles in the book comes a warm-up section to get your gears turning. The problems and puzzles are less complicated, but enough to whet your appetite for more challenging tests of your mathematical skills.
The book also includes and section with hints and all of the puzzles have complete answers in the back.
The Complete Book of Fun Maths is perfect to take along for boring waits at doctors’ offices or oil changes. It’s also great to keep in your bed stand or on your coffee table to begin your day or wind down for the night.
