Take Ten Cards

Just a simple set of ten number cards is all that's needed to enter a whole world of puzzles, games, explorations, and even magic tricks. The emphasis may be on enquiry and enjoyment, but the mathematics is both accessible and relevant.

Alan Parr has always been interested in using puzzles and games to help learning. He has written several mathematical adventures, most recently one commissioned by a National Curriculum body. He has invented dozens of games for both children and adults and was Primary Mathematics Adviser for Hertfordshire.
