ab: Originally published in France, this translation of mathematical conundrums
offers English-speaking students, as well as lovers of math games and
logic puzzles, an opportunity to meet the challenges devised by the
Fédération Française des Jeux Mathématiques for the International
Championship of Mathematics. Designed to address a student$\rq$s
reasoning skills rather than knowledge, this series of 50-problem sets
represents the best of more than a decade$\rq$ worth of championship
questions. The three collections are organized by mathematical themes -
geometry and symmetry, arithmetic and number theory, logic and
algorithmic process - to easily adapt to an instructor$\rq$s
curriculum. Each book is arranged with one problem per page for easy
overhead use or distribution. The Green Collection is the introductory
set, for middle school and high school students (grades 6-12). It
addresses classic problems such as the four-colour map, division of
irregular areas into equal parts, magic squares, and number mazes.
