Math puzzle is an easy and effective way to develop mind of kids. Playing with numbers challenges the thinking, brings and stimulates the motor skills, problem solving, reasoning skills while developing solutions. In the same time, it boost the self-confidence, learning how to “speak” the universal language of mathematics. Children find very interesting and attractive the game, and more often adults find it captivating as well.

While ago, in a studying math group, we started to play puzzles. That has come with a surprise as kids who feared playing numbers, shortly improved the calculus skills and having a new enthusiasm.

Now we create our own puzzles. It’s interesting, it’s self-confidence nurturing and is fun!

*“I love math, but I know that I’m unusual. Math anxiety is a rampant problem across the country. Researchers now know that when people with math anxiety encounter numbers, a fear center in the brain lights up — the same fear center that lights up when people see snakes or spiders. Anxiety is not limited to low-achieving students. Many of the undergraduates I teach at Stanford University, some of the most successful students in the nation, are math traumatized. In recent interviews, students have told me that learning math in school was like being on a “hamster wheel” — they felt like they were running and running, without reaching any meaningful destination. A seventh grader told me that math learning was like prison, because his mind felt “locked up.” Jo Boaler- Stanford University professor and co-founder of youcubed.org (Read more here )*

*“It has become almost a cliché to remark that nobody boasts of ignorance of literature, but it is socially acceptable to boast ignorance of science and proudly claim incompetence in mathematics.” – Richard Dawkins*

*“The ‘Muse’ is not an artistic mystery, but a mathematical equation. The gift are those ideas you think of as you drift to sleep. The giver is that one you think of when you first awake.” – Roman Payne*

*Happy Thursday, wherever you are! *

*“Philosophy (nature) is written in that great book which ever is before our eyes – I mean the universe – but we cannot understand it if we do not first learn the language and grasp the symbols in which it is written. The book is written in mathematical language, and the symbols are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without whose help it is impossible to comprehend a single word of it; without which one wanders in vain through a dark labyrinth.” – Galileo Galilei*
