"Math Mind Benders® give students an opportunity to develop their deductive reasoning skills." - Arithmetic Teacher
"After working a sample of the puzzles, the reviewer agrees with the publisher's claim that the puzzles 'combine mathematical operations with deductive reasoning to reinforce and extend students' verbal deductive reasoning skills.'" - Mathematics Teacher
"In addition to teaching my children persistence, Math Mind Benders® stimulates their imagination and creativity as they try different approaches to finding the right answers, and the activities add to their flexibility when they do mental math." - Bil, Peachtree City, GA
"I liked the required thinking skills. It is challenging to kids and appeals to their age level." - Margaret, Brainerd, MN
"My middle school boys, especially, thrive on the challenge of cracking these puzzles. First their brain shuts down, and they claim that any solution is impossible, but when the answers fall into place, they're so proud at getting results that they insist on showing everyone. I find these Mind Benders® a fabulous activity--and a great confidence booster--for those willing to take on a challenge." - Cheryl, Succasunna, NJ
