The Problem Pictures Numbers CD-ROM has more than 600 colour photographs with activities for mathematics teaching.
The Problem Pictures Numbers CD-ROM continues the tradition of bringing mathematics to life with photographs. The first part of the disk has more than two hundred eye-catching photographs, each with questions and activities to challenge students of all ages and abilities. There are pictures of pedal bins, liquorice allsorts, patchwork quilts and road signs. Weird architecture and historic instruments also appear in the mixture. The second part is on the theme of numbers. There is a page for each whole number from zero up to 220. Photographs show patterns based on particular numbers as well as diverse images of the numbers themselves. The accompanying text is adapted from the book Numbers: Facts, Figures and Fiction, juxtaposing mathematical ideas with facts and anecdotes about numbers in the real world.
