Mathematical puzzles make up an integral part of recreational mathematics. They have specific rules as do multiplayer games, but they do not usually involve competition between two or more players. Instead, to solve such a puzzle, the solver must find a solution that satisfies the given conditions. Mathematical puzzles require mathematics to solve them. Logic puzzles are a common type of mathematical puzzle.
Conway's Game of Life and fractals, as two examples, may also be considered mathematical puzzles even though the solver interacts with them only at the beginning by providing a set of initial conditions. After these conditions are set, the rules of the puzzle determine all subsequent changes and moves.

Word games and puzzles are spoken or board games often designed to test ability with language or to explore its properties.
Word games are generally engaged as a source of entertainment, but have been found to serve an educational purpose as well. For instance, young children can find enjoyment playing modestly competitive games such as Hangman, while naturally developing important language skills like spelling. Solving crossword puzzles, which requires familiarity with a larger vocabulary, is a pastime that mature adults have long credited with keeping their minds sharp.
There are popular televised word games with valuable monetary prizes for the winning contestants. Many word games enjoy international popularity across a multitude of languages, whilst some are unique to Englishspeakers.

Thanks to all that help in advance! Now I actually only need answers for numbers 2. , 4. , and 14. I just got all the other ones! Thanks so much for that helpful answer Jessica! When yahoo answers lets me I'll choose you as best answer! Thanks soo much! Oh & Jessica I copied all of those notes you gave to me, pasted them into Microsoft Word, printed it out, and now I can use that sheet as a study guide! It's going to be soooo helpful! Thank you!
Answers:1. Control 2. Procedure 3. Conclusion 4. Scientific Method 5. Independent 6. Hypothesis 7. Graphs (assuming) 8. Experiment 9. Problem 10. Model 11. Dependent 12. Collect 13. Data 14. Observations I'm sure you could have found all the answers on a worksheet you've done or in your textbook. I'm going to write down some notes I want you to copy so you have this information so science will make more sense to you (if you're not getting it.) IT WILL BE EXTREMELY HELPFUL FOR FUTURE REFERENCE!!! Define Problem  An approach to problem solving, can be used by anyone from observation or research (ALWAYS a question.) Ex: How much fertilizer makes bean grow the tallest? Form Hypothesis  Educated guess, if... then... because, testable  can collect data (#'s, observations, inference) Ex: IF I test 0, 1 tsp, 2 tsp and 3 tsp of fertilizer on beans, THEN beans will grow tallest with 2 tsp. BECAUSE... Experiment  organized way to test a hypothesis Control: standard for comparison Ex: 0 tsp of fertilizer Constant: stays the same Ex: amount of heat, light, soil Dependent variable: data/results you collect Ex: height of plants (# of flowers, etc) Independent variable: what is tested/what investigator changes Ex: amount of fertilizer (Easy way to remember dependent and independent so you don't get mixed up is D = data.. for dependent and I = investigator for independent) Field Study  Replaces exp. in situtations where many observations are used to collect data Ex: animal behavior, dinosaurs Conclusion  Accept or reject your hypothesis Model (Physics) = an idea or math expression that is similar to what scientists are trying to explain Ex: atom model: solar system Theory = well supported, well tested explanation, which unifies a broad range of observations Ex: dinosaurs extinct from a meteor Law  Explains an action or expected outcome Ex: gravity, math, physic laws Repeat (more hypothesis??)  Publish results, allow others to check your results (LOTS OF DATA NO EXCEPTIONS!) By suggestion improvements or changes, others can learn from your results. I really hope you copy this down it will be so useful to you. Hope this was helpful & good luck!!! :)Question:I'm a High School Junior and here lately, I've been forgeting things.
