2019 Spring Class

Brain Aerobics

Instructor: Fred E. Brown

Mondays •  3/18-5/13 • 1:00-3:00 PM

Location: Jewett 293

We know that physical activity helps to keep the body healthful. There are many who claim that keeping the mind active will provide a similar positive effect on the brain. In this class we will experience a multitude of activities designed to stimulate the mental side.

Primarily, we will study puzzles, strategies, patterns, similarities and differences. For example:
• Word puzzles (anagrams, cryptograms, filling blanks)
• Number puzzles (Sudoko, fill in the blanks)
• Visual puzzles (sequencing, changes)
• Manipulatives
• Why are some puzzles impossible to solve?

In addition I would encourage students to bring in their own favorites to share with the class. Classroom
