These two publications from the the Mathematics Centre at the University of Chichester focus on how the use of a microcomputer can be used to allow students to get worthwhile mathematical experiences by using a few words from the computers' programming language.

Computer Help in Mathematical Problem Solving

This booklet, from the Mathematics Centre at the University of Chichester, explores how the microcomputer can be a valuable tool when engaged in investigating a situation that leads to such laborious arithmetic that the 'sums' spoil the activity, especially in the organisation of data and the start of a search for...

Using UKMT problems to develop problem solving skills

I like using problems like the one attached to this post, taken from the 2012 UKMT Intermediate Mathematical Challenge, in the classroom. If you haven’t seen it before, have a go at it now, but also think about how you might use it in the classroom.

I have used this question by just drawing the diagram...
