Junior Problems (£15.00)Andrew Jobbings


This book includes all 300 problems from the ten Junior Mathematical Challenge papers set by the UKMT between 2007 and 2016. The problems—which are not given as multiple-choice questions—have been grouped together in two ways: by difficulty; and by topic. The answer to every problem in the book is included. Also, nearly every problem has a remark of some sort. Each remark is not intended to be a ‘full written solution’, but sketches one method, providing a sequence of pointers so that, hopefully, the reader is then able to go on and solve the problem.

About the Trust

The UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT) is a registered charity whose aim is to advance the education of children and young people in mathematics. The UKMT organises national mathematics competitions and other mathematical enrichment activities for 11-18 year old UK school pupils. We were established in 1996 and last academic year over 600,000 pupils from 4,000 schools took part in the three individual challenges, the UK's biggest national maths competitions. Each challenge leads into a follow-on Olympiad round and we run mentoring schemes and summer schools for high performing students as well as training the team of six to represent the UK in the International Mathematical Olympiad. We also run team maths competitions for two age ranges, publish books and organise enrichment seminars for teachers.
