Solving Puzzles with Einstein

What I Learned from Einstein: The Importance of Culture

As a kid, I loved doing math problems in my head and Einstein invited me to do puzzles with him, which I really enjoyed.

While I enjoyed the puzzles, what was even more special about this experience was the atmosphere Einstein created. We often tried approaches that didn't work out, but that was fine with Einstein. He encouraged experimentation and wasn't critical of wrong turns. In fact, he didn't consider any of the paths we tried to be wrong. That was a major difference between my experience with Einstein and my experience with many other adults. There were no right or wrong answers, there were just experiments, with curiosity leading the way, and that was the way I learned at Einstein's house.
