Bart was at a loss. He’d given all his people funny hats, named them “Team Gorgonzola,”
and led them in a rousing chorus of “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall,” but it still wasn’t working.
This “creating a culture” thing was harder than it sounded.

Magic Square is like a brisk morning walk or jog for the mind:
it makes you feel better (and think better) all day long.

Instructions: The goal of the Magic Square is to fill in the board with the numbers 1 to 16 in such a way that any group of numbers (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) equals 34. Each number can be used only once. The bar below each puzzle displays the remaining numbers you can use. First try puzzle A, which is an easier version of puzzle B.
