    British mathematics competition problems for ages 11 - 14.

    This text consists of two parts. The first part contains the six U. K. School Mathematics Challenge papers that were administered from 1989 - 1994. Each competition contained 25 multiple choice problems, divided into two parts, that are meant to be done without a calculator. The first part of each examination consists of relatively straightforward problems, which students are encouraged to check before moving on to the ten more challenging problems in the second part of the examination. The second part of the book consists of 42 ten problem multiple choice papers that are also meant to be done without a calculator. The problems within each paper become increasingly difficult, as do the papers themselves. The problems are accessible to students of this age, but they are not easy. Answers, but not solutions, to all the problems are given. This is the chief limitation of the book, because simply knowing the correct answer does not tell you why it is true. That said, working through these problems is fun and is a good way for students of this age to prepare for mathematics competitions.
