Mathematical games and puzzles have been used as a source of amusement and entertainment for thousands of years. It is now recognised that puzzles and games represent an authentic context for the development of mathematical problem solving and reasoning skills. Students who develop these mathematical proficiencies of problem solving and reasoning can then apply them to a range of increasingly sophisticated mathematical problems.
This collection of 120 mathematical games and puzzles was compiled by Dr John West (Mathematical Association of Western Australia). It includes 17 different types of puzzle designed to provide an appropriate level of challenge for students of different ages and abilities.
