Visual Thinking PuzzlesBook - 1998
How much can you visualize? Can you imagine the mirror image of a given object, or the best way to connect a series of geometrical shapes? How might you figure out the shortest distance between any two points, the number of salami slices that fit on a pizza, or the amount of coffee a pot can hold? These tricky puzzlers will test your ability to do these things and more, and help you develop this valuable mental skill. Here are all kinds of grids, patterns, and pictures to essay. Examine a connect-the-dots, and see how many squares you can create from these carefully arranged points. Then, identify the logic in the dots' sequence. Learn about "negative space" by cracking a code and finding a hidden animal. Play mathematical games with numbers and "train your brain" on an imaginary railroad journey. Meet John P. Cubic, puzzle master extraordinaire, and see if your talents equal his. All the answers appear in the back--but don't peek until you imagine these puzzles driving you crazy! Sterling 96 pages, 150 b/w illus., 5 3/8 x 8 1/4.
