Smart Moves: Developing Mathematical Reasoning With Games and Puzzles is designed to improve your sequential reasoning skills, explore some mathematics, and have fun along the way. The games and puzzles were created to encourage perseverance and logical thinking. The Mathematical Connections highlight key math concepts. The Game of Racetrack is the perfect introduction to vectors, Tour Puzzles lead to graph theory and Euler paths, and the mathematics behind Magic Squares is revealed.
Smart Moves is a very effective way to support mathematical learning and reduce the anxiety that often accompanies the subject. Each chapter is designed to strengthen sequential reasoning, which is necessary for everyday living and problem solving. Preparing family meals, installing new software on your computer, or assembling a piece of furniture, all require sequential reasoning.
Whether you are nine or ninety, in the classroom or at home, I invite you to make a smart move and discover how much fun math can be!
