Maths Week Puzzles in The Journal

The Journal is three days into its daily maths challenge for Maths Week Ireland.

The Journal has a history of supporting Maths Week Ireland, and 2014 is no different. For every day of the week they are challenging readers to solve a devious maths puzzle, with the answers being revealed on Friday. This is an excellent way of engaging your brain with some mathematical thinking and the minor competitive element really serves to bolster the challenge. The puzzles are tricky, but not impossible and perfectly suited to adults or a secondary school class alike.

 

You can find a link to their puzzles from Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday right here.
