Follow us on Twitter and play along as we tweet daily analogies. Analogies will be posted Monday through Friday, increasing in difficulty as the week progresses (like the NY Times Crossword Puzzle!). The number that appears before the analogy indicates the Challenge level where the analogy was previously used; for example, (4B) means the analogy appeared in a 4th Grade - Blue Division Challenge.
If you are unfamiliar with analogy notation, remember that a single colon (:) means "is to" and a double colon (::) means "as". So "black : white :: good : evil" reads "black is to white as good is to evil". Usually, we leave just the last term out, so to solve the analogy you choose the word that makes the most sense. Sometimes we leave the second part of the analogy out altogether, so you must choose a pair of words that have the same relationship as the first pair.
The correct answer to each day's analogy will be tweeted the following day.
Teachers, this is a great way to keep your students thinking analytically over the summer and between Challenge meets!
Good luck and have fun!
