Problem Pictures Themes cover

Problem Pictures Themes has more than 300 colour photographs with activities for mathematics teaching.

Themes covered include Chocolate, Games & Puzzles, Mazes, Perspective, Time, and Wheels, as well as a large Medley section covering many other topics. U-Shaped Curves, Straight Lines & Gradients and Waves & Other Curves are three sections that can be used to model photographs with graphs.

Like the original Problem Pictures resource, this edition contains a varied collection of attractive and unusual images which are starting points for mathematical activities. The activities are intended mostly for students in the 9 to 16 age group, although some of them will appeal to younger and older students.

Each photograph is saved as jpeg files at four resolutions, the largest being 1365 × 1024. The text can be copied and pasted into other applications. Includes hints and solutions.
