Our BEST-SELLING item just got better - with a whole new set of animal themed logic puzzles! We've got cuddly cats, silly dogs, and scaly snakes to get those creative problem thinking skills flowing.
The ABC=123 Brainteasers are math-based logic puzzles called alphametics. They can be used as daily warm-up exercises, challenge problems, extra credit, gifted enrichment, or as a substitute for in-class work for students who have already mastered the current curricular unit. The problems in this booklet are geared for 5th and 6th graders, but can also be used with gifted 4th graders (with proper instructional support).
These 12 math puzzles appear deceptively easy at first glance, but can be very frustrating for students who have not been given some basic problem-solving skills to use. Alphametic problems require a great deal of mathematical reasoning to solve, which is why we've included an extra two puzzles in the packet with hints for how to solve them. This learning packet includes instructional strategies you can use with your students to ensure feelings of success and satisfaction that comes from solving challenging problems.
