The Insane Riddle, Code, and Secret Math Book was designed to bring out the inner genius in all of us. Whether simple or hard, riddles immediately engage the mind. This fun process of word play requires the reader to call on prior knowledge, word meaning, and context clues in order to sort out each mental puzzle. This work is a stimulating hook for the brain with adults, and a great educational tool for young learners. What makes this book unique is the addition of codes, ciphers, and mathematics. If the reader wants to know the answer to the riddle, they must take the scrambled numbers, letters, or symbols after the riddle, and decode or decipher them using mathematics. This process is achievable and addictive for anyone ages 7-70+, and is sure to grab the attention of all those who have a curiosity and passion for language arts!
"I think it's important for kids to be creative through languages, which are basically codes...and to see learning as fun; which it is!"
