This is an excellent book which no mathematics department should be without. Its 50 self-contained lessons offer amusing, fascinating and mathematically worthwhile tasks which are supported by excellent teacher notes. Most books are not worth recommending but this is different. -- Paul Andrews, Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education, University of Cambridge
This collection is a "must have" for every teacher who wants to inspire students to be excited by mathematics, yet not stray too far from core topics. Every lesson contains key insights into mathematics, using ideas, links and contexts which are mysterious, fun, silly, bizarre, practical and historical. -- Anne Watson, Reader in Mathematics Education, University of Oxford
"Good tasks develop a life of their own and shown be readily extendible for learners who need further challenges." The author writes this in his introduction and has produced a set of very good tasks indeed. The tasks take about a side, perhaps two, of A4 to explain and are very easy to understand yet offering a rich task for students to work on...Each task has a summary box explaining the related topics - making it easy to find one for the current topic of study - and the materials needed - essential for preventing disaster as the lesson unfolds...This is a great resource for a department office and for ideas to be shared in advance of the next topic. -- Peter Hall
