The Ultimate Math Puzzle Adventure

Secrets of the Wizard is a fantasy adventure for anyone (age 12 and up) who loves solving math puzzles. It tells the story of the good wizard, Galimedes, and his two faithful helpers as they try to recover the lost scrolls of time and seasons that were stolen by the evil magician, Zarvildar. The story is packed full of action and suspense.

The pages of the story are scrambled and renumbered (so only the worthy will gain access to the secrets). Indeed, only by solving the math puzzle on each page will you know the number of the page to read next. There are 99 math puzzles altogether!

There is also a hidden secret message which you can spell out by stringing together the first letters on each of the pages when they are read in the correct order. This message will reveal the wizard’s greatest secret.
 
There is an appendix with hints and a second appendix with the answers written in a simple substitution code so that a quick peek is not likely to reveal the answers.

The author's goal is to combine math puzzles with a great story that will keep you on the “edge of your seat.” There are frequent "cliff-hangers." Only by solving the math puzzles will you find out what happens next.
 
Secrets of the Wizard should be of tremendous interest to anyone who enjoys fantasy stories and/or the challenge of solving math puzzles. Teachers and tutors who need enrichment materials as well as parents who want to encourage their children's interest in math will find this book to be a great resource.
