Perplexors

Perplexors, like Mind Benders, are full of deductive thinking puzzles to solve. However, Perpelexors has discarded the grid format and has listed each problem in columnar format with each possibility listed under each subject, allowing the student to cross off the ones that don't work out, and leave them with the information that they need in easily accessible format. Each page features the problem, the column setup, and a series of clues to use to solve the puzzle. Each book features 48 deductive thinking puzzles, all age-appropriate to its suggested grade levels. Each book progresses in complexity, adding more categories and more people or objects from about three to four subjects and two to four categories in the basic level, to five or more subjects and up to nine categories in the expert level. Compared to Mind Benders, these start out at a more advanced level, so a bit of explanation about the process of elimination and deductive reasoning might be necessary for some children. Each book does begin with an example puzzle and a clearly written explanation of how to solve it. A challenging deductive reasoning problem is enjoyable for most kids - and gives other parts of the brain a chance to get exercised during the school day. Answers included. - Jess
