The mathematics of ancient Egypt was fundamentally different from the mathematics of today, which makes solving ancient Egyptian problems quite an adventure.

The Problem Pictures CD-ROM contains 184 colour photographs with activities for mathematics teaching. It is an unusual resource — one that must be seen to be fully appreciated (examples can be found at http://www.problempictures.co.uk). The photographs are a mixture of images: attractive, unusual and/or puzzling. They challenge students to investigate and explain, or they might be the starting point for a survey or design — all the stuff that Working Mathematically is made of!
Questions and activities accompany each photograph; in addition, teachers can access a page giving hints, solutions and further information. Ideas connected with the pictures include symmetry, ratio, number patterns, spirals, games, packaging, mazes and sundials.
