Shawyer, Bruce is the author of Shaking Hands in Corner Brook and Other Math Problems ( avg rating, 0 ratings, 0 reviews). As opposed to our earlier book of problems, Shaking Hands in Corner Brook, available from the Waterloo Mathematics Foundation, this booklet contains no solutions, only answers. Also, the problems are arranged in the form in which we use them in games. We hope that this will be of use to other groups running Mathematics Competitions.

Problems from past Senior High Math League competitions have been collected in four books: Shaking Hands in Corner Brook is available from the University of Waterloo Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing; ATOM (A Taste Of Mathematics) Volume III: Problems for Mathematics Leagues is available from the Canadian Mathematical Society; ATOM (A Taste Of Mathematics) . Introduce the problem by getting 3 students to role-play people meeting and shaking hands. Count and record the number of handshakes. Discuss other ways of convincing others that there are 3 handshakes (eg, draw a picture). Pose the problem for the students to work on in pairs or small groups.
