NUTTY NUMBER RIDDLES

A cheerful grab-bag of mathematical puzzles and jokes. With simple props--coins, toothpicks, dominoes--and interludes with Morton the Moron and the Noodlehead family, the lessons never get more complicated than fractions, negative numbers, and an introduction to the metric system. Darrow's light, tossed-off scrawls are apt, and an occasional purely smart-aleck answer--""How can you tell the number of records in a cabinet without counting them?/ Have someone else count them""--adds to the fun.
