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 should be accessible to young people from age thirteen upwards and yet contains material which should stretch the brightest students.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a book that meets not only the needs of teachers who are involved in the delivery of enrichment material whether it be in the classroom or on a Saturday morning, but also the cravings of those occasional students whose appetite for mathematics is insatiable. * The Mathematical Gazette *
Resources like this deserve a prominent place on the shelf of any mathematics department that is on the look out for ways to enthuse, educate, inspire and challenge. * The Mathematical Gazette *
The main ideas are accessible to children from the age of eleven, while some parts of the book should interest and challenge older school and university students, as well as their teachers and parents. * EMS *
What a good read for anyone interested in mathematics ... historical stories link beautifully to work involving different bases and give good introductory stories for lessons in number work ... 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, a slide-rule is an ancient weapon from a more civilised age" State Budd and Sangwin in their book Mathematics Galore ... placed in the right hands [the book] is a powerful weapon. May the force be strong with readers. was there ever a more civilised age when mathematics was taught as eclectically as this? * Plus Online Magazine *
This is a book which anyone with an interest in mathematics should enjoy, particulary those looking for innovative teaching ideas. * Education in Chemistry *
