Problem Solving in Primary Mathematics provides a concise introduction to mathematical problem solving. Each chapter explores a specific mathematical problem solving technique. The book contains more than 45 fully worked examples and over 200 problems (complete with solutions), appropriate for students working at a wide range of levels. Mathematical problems arise in almost every aspect of students’ lives yet few leave school with an appreciation of mathematics as a powerful tool for problem solving. It is anticipated that this book will be a valuable resource for teachers, parents and students wishing to develop or expand their mathematical problem solving skills.
