The puzzles and problems found in this book are designed for the classroom and consequently they assess English and Mathematic skills, as well as helping to develop students’ general knowledge. They challenge students through a series of mental exercises to help them develop into more effective, skilful and critical thinkers. As they endeavour to solve the puzzles and problems, students will need to apply higher-order processes required for creative problem solving, decision making and conceptualising.

© ReadyEdPubl i cat i ons •f orr evi ew pur posesonl y•

Many of the puzzles found in this book suit more able students and fast finishers. They can be given as extension work to students who need challenging beyond their year level or can be issued as extra work to those who finish allocated class work early.

m . u

w ww

If they wish, students can create their own puzzles and problems based on the ones found in this book. Such endeavours will extend the students’ use of creativity in thinking and research skills.

. te o c Answers are found at the back of the book to make life easy for the . c e teacher. her r o t s super The puzzles and problems are designed to engage the students as they are humorous, topical and clearly set out.

Finding The Gypsy Prince

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

Teac he r

ew i ev Pr

Many years ago a baby boy was stolen and a bag full of coal was left in his cradle. The baby was the prince of the small mountain kingdom of Someplacia. The police force, its army and navy, scoured the region searching for the baby prince but to no avail. (Although, as it was a mountain kingdom, Someplacia’s navy consisted of only four sailors with two canoes and a well-trained pair of geese, but they did their best.) Everyone was very disappointed, especially as a bag of coal was worth practically nothing, but a doggedly determined detective, Joe Stictoitum, stayed on the case and after forty-five years he was closer than ever to finding the baby prince, who was now a bit older than a baby.

The detective discovered that the prince had been stolen by a band of gypsies who raised him as one of their own. The detective also learned that the prince was the gypsy in the band who played the guitar. When Stictoitum studied the gypsies, he excluded the obvious, such as the women and those not forty-five years of age. He narrowed the list to four possibilities. Help him sort through the data below to find the prince. One of the gypsies, Kielbasa, who had a thick black moustache, could speak two languages, French and Polish. Another gypsy nicknamed Quick Fingers, because he was a great pickpocket, spoke Hungarian and Romanian. The gypsy who couldn’t play any musical instrument at all, which was rare for gypsies, was the one who had the largest and bushiest sideburns that Joe had ever seen. The gypsy named Braunschweiger was not the one nicknamed Wagon Dragon but he was the only one of the four who was clean-shaven. Andouille had a full black beard that he braided on special occasions because he thought it made him look intelligent, but it was one of the others who was nicknamed Professor not him. The gypsy nicknamed Fussy played a mean tambourine and when he accompanied Braunschweiger playing his violin they sounded wonderful. The Professor spoke Hungarian and Russian, that he found more useful than if he spoke Russian and German as Andouille did. The great pickpocket was Cervelat with the large busy sideburns. The Wagon Dragon had the thick black moustache, which made it clear and obvious who played the guitar and consequently who was the real prince of Someplacia.

Detective Work 2 Read the passage below then fill in the data grid beneath to help find the last surviving pirate. Note, all the pirates have different attributes.

Finding the Last Surviving Pirate During the eighteenth century at the height of the pirate era the most infamous, wicked, evil, terrible, nasty, most disgusting nose-picker and most dangerous pirate of all was Captain Cecil Sweetypoo. His ship was the Pretty Princess and his crew was the worst lot of cutthroat pirates that the Caribbean had ever seen. Legend tells us how one day the Pretty Princess sailed to an uncharted island where Captain Sweetypoo buried the greatest treasure that anyone could imagine.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

Teac he r

ew i ev Pr

The treasure was buried and of course the obligatory treasure map was drawn. Pretty Princess sailed away from the island and there arose a muttering among its crew. The pirates began to question how moronic it was to go through the hardship and danger of living a life of piracy just to bury their ill-gained fortune. The crew fought and after a horrific battle only one pirate survived.

The famous detective, Joe Stictoitum, was determined to find the last surviving crew member of the Pretty Princess and the treasure map that he had tattooed on his parrot’s chest, a red-bellied macaw. After forty-five years, Stictoitum narrowed the search to an old pirate retirement home, Ye Auld Decrepit Pirate Rest Home, and four of its residents. Help him analyse the data to figure out who the last surviving pirate was. Like all retired pirates the one who was once known as Sweet Tooth had taken on a civilian name, Humpty Dumpty, to stay hidden from the law. Of course it would have helped his cover if he hadn’t moved into an old pirate retirement home and his wooden leg didn’t help either. One of the retired pirates wore an eye patch. It was a gorgeous little lacy pink number which went with the purple-crowned lorikeet on his shoulder. The old man who was known as Honey Cheeks was not the one now named Candle Jack who enjoyed sewing. The man with the red-bellied macaw was now named Tom Piper and he just adored ballet dancing, although he didn’t look very cute in his leotard and tutu. The old pirate retirement home resident with the civilian name Jack Hill loved to crochet, mainly dainty little doilies. There was also the pirate Moonbeam who was not now named Tom Piper or Jack Hill. The one who had the long-tailed parakeet and liked knitting also had a wooden leg. The once upon a time pirate who had a wooden nose and a lilac-tailed parrotlet was the one who neither liked crocheting nor ballet dancing. He would say that such hobbies were way too sissy for a real pirate. Finally the old pirate with a hook hand was now known as Honey Cheeks. Bless his soul he was the one who loved ballet dancing more than anything else and I’m sorry I said he didn’t look cute in his tutu.

Detective Work 3 Read the passage below then fill in the data grid beneath to find the MUSHiest Hero. Note, all the heroes have a different score for each attribute.

The Heroes

Teac he r

The Heroes and Hairstylists Academy (HAHA) decided that it would give a special award to its most special member, but not to a hairstylist. The special award was the Most Ultimate Special Hero prize and they wanted to award it to the hero who was special as well as the most ultimate, naturally. But they were having an impossible time trying to select a hero to give the award to. There were so many detectives and secret agents in the academy that they just didn’t know where to start. Obviously there was only one thing they could do and that was to outsource the job. For such a project there was only one man they could hire. So they called for the incomparable, the indomitable, the indispensable, indestructible, incorruptible, detective Joe Stictoitum.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

ew i ev Pr

The great detective studied every detective and secret agent in the HAHA and ended up with a shortlist of four. At first he thought that he would give the MUSH award to the one who had defeated the most villains but he couldn’t calculate that because one very mean nasty villain could be worth two nasty ones or four regular ones. He thought he would present the award to the one who defeated the most terrible villain. But as they all had saved the world from the clutches of several insane and demonic would-be tyrants there was no separating them on that account. So he decided to allot one to four points to the four contenders under various categories. The one with the most points would receive the prize.

Stictoitum found it very easy to allocate the first set of points. Immediately he placed a 4 in the Observation column for Sherlock and another 4 to him for his Deduction abilities. Joe had a problem sorting out the points for Weapons Use and Martial Arts. Two of the heroes were inseparable so he had to think long and hard on it. (Thinking long gave Stictoitum a migraine and thinking hard made him cross-eyed so thinking long and hard put him in hospital for a week. But when he came out he was back on the case.) He gave 4 for Weapons Use and 3 for Martial Arts to one of them and 3 for Weapons Use and 4 for Martial Arts to the other. The detective considered one of the four candidates as having pretty good powers of Observation and Deduction but he spent so much time partying that he was often too bleary eyed to see the obvious, so he gave the candidate 3s for both Observation and Deduction. Joe had to concede that the Deduction and Observation genius was pretty hopeless with weapons and hand-to-hand fighting so he gave him 1s for both those traits. Unlike giving out the top points in Observation Joe had a problem who to give the lower points to. He was careful not to think too long and hard about it and decided to give Maxwell Smart the 2. Austin spent too much time partying to fully develop his powers of Weapon Use and Martial Arts so he got 2s for them. Inspector Clouseau got 5 for Martial Arts and half that much for his Deduction, which Stictoitum considered pretty fair.
