Digital Math Mysteries are a fun and engaging activity where 3rd graders begin reading or listening to the story, solve the word problems, and click on the correct answer. If the correct answer is chosen, the story continues. If a wrong answer is chosen, a 'stopper' will tell them to go back to where they were working, and TRY AGAIN! Check out the video to see how this math mystery works!

There is also a link to a Google Forms version of this math mystery as well. However, it is not narrated and students will probably require help with the reading involved.

This mystery includes these skills:

  • subtraction from 1,000
  • Time to the nearest minute
  • combined rectangular area
  • equivalent fractions
  • division facts
  • comparing fractions
  • using parentheses to solve multi-step problems
  • Elapsed time
  • graphing
  • estimating as to whether you have enough money

PLEASE NOTE: The forms are NOT editable. There is no need to view results, like in a quiz because students MUST get the answer correct before advancing to the next section.

This fun and engaging digital mystery is SELF-CORRECTING, NO PREP, and completely PAPERLESS. Just decide if you want your kids to work individually or in groups. Then, share the genial.ly link with your students on your digital learning management system and watch the excitement begin!

This math mystery should take your students approximately 30 minutes to complete, depending on student ability levels. Some of the benefits of digital math mysteries are:

  • Builds critical thinking skills
  • Promotes problem-solving skills
  • Paperless and No Prep
  • Reinforces grade level math concepts
  • Engaging and fun!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8.
Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, (e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3). Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
