−We can use this to develop visualization, logical reasoning and algorithmic sense in students by performing various operations with the Turtle. This can help in the building of computational thinking and you can also introduce some geometry through this.

+'''YOUR PHONE NUMBER WILL REVEAL YOUR AGE'''

−Your Phone number will reveal your actual Age. It will take about 15 seconds,read and do it at the same time so that you will not lose the fun.

+#Take a look at your last digit of your cell phone number

+#Use this figure and multiply by 2

+#Then add 5

+#And then multiply by 50

+#And then add the number 1765

+#The last step; with this number, subtract your birth year.

−Now you see a three-digit number. The first digit is the last digit of your phone number, the next two digits are your actual age! You can use the attached [http://karnatakaeducation.org.in/KOER/en/images/1/17/Phone_number_birthday_puzzle.ods spreadsheet] to solve this and find out why it works!!
