Creative use of odd moments

Odd moments are when half the class arrives late for some reason or when the main business of the lesson is completed before the bell or whenever you as teacher contrive to find a short period of time to discuss an interesting problem. 

The contents of this book provide a variety of ideas to use creatively in such odd moments. 

Each item contains something to discuss or explore which can be adapted or extended to suit a wide range of students. 

These odd moments originally appeared in Mathematics In School and reproduced in the book with additional notes on each idea.
