This is a very simple introduction to mathematical puzzles. I chose the simple one in case it proved to be too tough for my sudoku-challenged brain. Surprisingly, I just got my feet wet when my youngest child "stole" it. My younger children wanted to learn how to do sudoku but keeping track of the 9 numbers was a little too much for them. This one was just right and made an easier transition for them to sudoku.
