Guidance on organisation and planning to cater for more able pupils in mathematics, with advice on other sources of help and material. This book addresses class organisation, planning and teaching through answers to commonly asked questions.

The book provides 98 pages of puzzles and problems for Key Stages 1 and 2. They are intended to challenge pupils and extend their thinking. While some of them may be solved fairly quickly, others will need perseverance and may extend beyond a single lesson. Pupils may need to draw on a range of skills to solve the problems.
