The range of puzzles incorporates multiple approaches to skill building, including numerical manipulation, spatial/visual exercises, and language arts exercises.Teachers can use this comprehensive compilation of puzzles as warm-up exercises, questions for team competition, group problem-solving exercises, or just for fun!Praise for "Math Puzzles and Brainteasers""Terry Stickels, well known as a master creator of puzzles for adults, has turned his attention to brainteasers for youngsters. His two books for children are superb collections of such problems. Like Goldilocks' third bed, they are neither too hard nor too soft, but just right. And I suspect that many parents will find themselves hooked on solving some of Terry's puzzles, especially his delightful frame problems." --Martin Gardner, puzzle creator and author"This is a rich set of diverse mathematical problems that can enrich a math class, stimulate children to play with mathematical ideas, or give gifted children a chance to solve interesting problems that lie beyond the limits of most school mathematical curricula." --Michael Schiro, associate professor, Mathematics Education, Boston College"I've always found puzzles to be great mental stimulators for kids, and Terry Stickels' varied, entertaining brainteasers are perfect for this purpose." --Will Shortz, crossword editor, "The New York Times"
