A Collection of Logical Puzzles to Make You Think
Solving problems logically is a key life skill - without it decisions will be poor. Such skills are hard to teach and learn - practice and "puzzling" are vital.
But solving logic problems doesn't come naturally to everyone.
This book helps:
- True or false questions - the core task is easy to understand.
- Amusing illustrations and verbal problems create a cumulative story.
- Thinking mathematically - logically - is what is needed to succeed…and readers will!
- Contents include 12 chapters, each with multiple questions, making 85 puzzles in all.
- A Hints and Solutions chapter that introduces basic techniques like decision trees.
- Answers are also provided.
Being rushed through a curriculum can leave little time for core "thinking" skills. Tarquin has over 50 years experience of providing warm up and short activities to teachers, students and parents.
