Brain Benders 1 for Junior Primary Students is the first book in a series of three. It contains twenty-six photocopiable mathematical problems which are all curriculum linked. Some of the problems are more challenging than others, thus the book caters for a range of abilities within the junior primary cohort.
Each problem appears next to an answer page which not only provides the problem’s solution but clearly explains the methods that can be used to arrive at the solution. In this way, Brain Benders 1 is designed to not only test a wide range of methods to solve problems but to equip students with effective problem solving techniques and strategies which will help strengthen their mathematical skills.
