San Gaku
San Gaku, also known as Japanese Temple Problems, are challenging geometric puzzles requiring anything from Pythagoras' theorem (as in the questions chosen here) to much more complex maths to solve. The activity aims to introduce the style of problem through a few select questions, each with a numerical as well as an algebraic part. Answers, printable worksheets and interactive GSP also included.
