Solving Brain Teasers

Introduction

Society expects teachers to successfully facilitate students’ cognitive development. But cognition occurs when taught material makes sense and is affected by emotional development. Recognizing that neither teachers nor students are educated in pieces, but rather as part of a larger educational system, we must address many variables that affect students’ attitudes, morale, and school performance. One of these variables is the ongoing training in problem solutions in a classroom setting. Lately, I have been thinking about how a student’s intellectual growth and confidence are improved via finding solutions to brain teasers.

Brain Teasers

Students are an integral part of the educational system and they require a consistently implemented training in problem solutions. Training in problem solution provides internal learning support that enhances intellectual capacity and students’ confidence. Solving brain teasers frequently involves thinking in unconventional ways with given constraints in mind. Sometimes it also involves lateral thinking. Logic puzzles and riddles are specific types of brain teasers. Below I am offering videos of a few logic puzzles and brain teasers. Fun to do!
