Questions & AnswersProductsAbout Mitch Adler


Dear Mitch,

I know I'm running a little late on this, but would you happen to be able to direct me to some good puzzles or math questions that have a Christmas theme?  I've heard that you've posted some in the past that had pictures of Christmas ornaments on balance scales that would be fun for anyone from young kids to high school or even college kids?  If it's true, are they still available for me to pull up?

Thank you and Merry Christmas,

Joan C.


Dear Joan C.,

Sure, and it's very easy to find them!

All you have to do is go into our Q&A Archive, which you'll see on the left-hand margin of our homepage, and click on it.  Then, scroll to the bottom, and you'll see a bunch of numbers horizontally arranged.  Click on numbers 20 and 21, and I think you'll find LOTS of puzzles and questions that are exactly what you're looking for.  Just click on each one that sounds interesting, and you'll see what I mean, including several balance scale ones!  (These, the balance scale problems, have proven to be among the most popular question & answer puzzles we've ever posted).

I hope this helps!

Enjoy your Holiday,
