This publication provides guidance and examples of how matchsticks can be used in a range of mathematical puzzles. The puzzles are designed especially for the 7-14 age range. A practical and engaging resource, this book is set up so that teachers can photocopy the puzzles without the solutions. The accompanying CD ROM has interactive versions of the puzzles, in which learners can move around virtual matchsticks to test out possible solutions. It can be used as a whole-class activity or on an individual basis and is as flexible as you need it to be. The activities provide a wealth of opportunities for enhancing mathematical thinking, thinking outside the box and working collaboratively to solve problems. A really fun resource!
