Description

This group activities could be done in the physical classroom or in breakout sessions on Zoom or Google classroom.

Each student will be responsible for a set of 6 problems applying the concepts you have taught in class. Together, the group will solve the logic puzzle based on clues that result from their individual solutions.

Highlighted Formulas/Skill:

  • Pythagorean Theorem used to find missing side length
  • Solve Areas of figures:
    • Rectangles,
    • Triangles,
    • Circles,
    • Parallelograms,
    • Composite Figures
    • Solve a surface area application word problem

With this activity, your students will...

  • Build their skills as they find the area of different figures.
  • Deepen their understanding as they build their critical thinking and logic skills.
  • All be involved. Since each student has his/her own paper they are responsible for, it keeps any one member from just sitting back and letting the rest of the group take over.
  • Learn how to think critically. Logic puzzles build critical thinking and problem-solving skills (the same skills you need to excel at math!) 
  • Learn to solve complex problems by simply doing the one step you know, then the next step, then the next, until you arrive at the answer.

Perfect for centers or cooperative learning activities. Want to see an example? Hit download on the preview page to try our Free Logic Puzzle "Order of Operations Logic Puzzle" sample with your class.
