The Solving Maths Problems series addresses the perennial demand from teachers for problem-solving activities in maths. Although teachers have been receptive to recommendations for problem types from Local Authority Advisers, they still feel that they haven't got the time to invent their own problem solving questions. This series offers teachers a solution by providing a variety of problem solving activities and answers. Each book is accompanied by a CD-ROM which includes whiteboard examples of each problem type and activity sheets that children can complete as a follow-up. The sheets are in both PDF form and Word files so that teachers can customise them to meet individual needs or for homework.
Andrew Brodie was a head teacher for twelve years after many successful years in the primary classroom. He began writing his best-selling educational books in 1992 and since then has established himself as a name that teachers have come to trust. He is still very much involved in education and continues to teach on a regular basis.
