It is our observation that today many students and even adults lack the ability to think logically and divergently, to imagine and visualize creatively and to apply high thinking skills like analysis, synthesis, evaluation, logical reasoning, judgment and critical thinking in solving problems and issues.
The Thing is to Think has the following objectives:
- To promote HOTS (Higher Order Thinking Skills) like logical, creative and divergent thinking
- To provide a vast diversified range of materials for HOTS
- To help stimulate the mind with lots of clean fun and creative problems, puzzles and games
- To serve as a fun and educational resource book for use in the classroom, school societies, camps and so on
The Thing is to Think has a total of 20 Chapters covering many different types of THINKING problems, puzzles, tests, brainteasers, and language games. The Authors hope that The Thing is to Think will help and inspire many to THINK … and this is an important THING.
