Did you know?

Puzzles activate both the left and right hemispheres of the brain. “Imagination is activated alongside reasoning or reckoning,” Danesi says. “Memory also comes into play, especially in word-based and math-based puzzles. This entails a ‘whole-brain’ activation.”

Marcel Danesi, professor of semiotics and anthropology at Victoria College, University of Toronto, CITED in https://www.rd.com/article/what-happens-to-your-brain-when-do-a-puzzle/

Math it seems is becoming a long lost art, with the penetration and propensity to use calculators or other devices in our daily lives that essentially do the calculations for us. So by necessity a math question for many has become a proxy for a brain teaser or logic puzzle! This is not a good state of affairs, and while we do not believe, or want to believe that either this level of math ignorance has been reached or this is the necessary result of technological dependence, we will pose math problems that have some form of imagination or ingenuity within. That being said, there is but no question that there are math problems that will provide a challenge within the scope of math literacy that encounter our brain teasers, and please look forward to a range of puzzles that will be rolled out.
