Bovine Math...

for the discriminating problem solver

This is a collection of mathematical puzzles that will engage, enrage and enthrall your students.

The puzzles all look the same but the "mechanics" vary dramatically.

There are bridges, fields and cows.The cows browse in the fields and the bridges harbour clues about these cows.

The simplicity of this problem structure encourages students to concentrate on the mathematics and not the context.
