The Mathsteasers Series
A welcome challenge for advanced learners
Keep advanced learners engaged with the Mathsteasers Series. Featuring questions developed by world-renowned mathematician Tony Gardiner, the series follows the 2014 English national curriculum. Spanning three booklets for Years 4–8, Mathsteasers questions encourage deep mathematical thinking instead of simply accelerating through topics.
A class on the same page
By deepening advanced learners’ knowledge within a single topic instead of moving to higher-order content, Mathsteasers encourage whole-class teaching.

When you use Mathsteasers is up to you. Having a clever day? Select the right problem to give learners an added challenge.
A challenge for everyone
Questions from any Mathsteasers booklet give learners a challenge all the way up to lower secondary school.
