Summary a deliciously tasty, pocket-sized puzzle book by Ed Southall and Vincent Pantaloni. The idea behind the book is to show that problems can be solved in several ways, which means that, say the authors: "once a puzzle is solved, there are further surprises, insights and challenges to be had." Alex Bellos, Guardian Geometry Snacks is a bestselling mathematical puzzle book filled with geometrical figures and questions designed to challenge, confuse and ultimately enlighten enthusiasts of all ages. Each puzzle is carefully designed to draw out interesting phenomena and relationships between the areas and dimensions of various shapes. Furthermore, unlike most puzzle books, the authors offer multiple approaches to solutions so that once a puzzle is solved, there are further surprises, insights and challenges to be had. As a teaching tool, Geometry Snacks enables teachers to promote deep thinking and debate over how to solve geometry puzzles. Each figure is simple, but often deceptively tricky to solve - allowing for great classroom discussions about ways in which to approach them. By offering numerous solution approaches, the book also acts as a tool to help encourage creativity and develop a variety of strategies to chip away at problems that often seem to have no obvious way in.
