This exercise gets everyone on the same page and thinking along the same wavelength.
Note: The group can get hung up on the first three steps, so talk them through with an example.
|Step 1:||Pick a number between 1-9.|
|Step 2:||Multiply this number by 9.|
|Example: 4 x 9 = 36|
|Step 3:||If there are two digits in this number, add these two numbers together.|
|Example: 3 + 6 = 9|
|Step 4:||Subtract 5 from this number.|
|[Example: 9 ø 5 = 4]|
|Step 5:||Correlate this number to a number in the alphabet. For example, 1=A, 2=B, 3=C, 4=D.|
|[Example: 4 correlates to D]|
