CRITICAL THINKING: Be a Math Magician
Be a Math Magician
is a set of 20 math puzzles and brain teasers that are CCSS aligned. These activities are learning disguised as fun. Students are honing their problem solving skills as they exercise inductive and deductive reasoning. The Math Magician Tricks also promote creative thinking, as your students will need to think “outside the box.”
Each of these puzzles is print ready, making them easy to establish as a math center. For your convenience, an appendix is provided with black line copies of the manipulatives your students will need.
These puzzles are also useful as anchor activities, sponge activities, and enrichment challenges. Fast finishers can fill their time with these, as well. You may wish to post one trick in the morning, then evaluate their conclusions/progress at dismissal time. If the trick remains unsolved, leave it up for the next day. These activities lend themselves well to collaborative thinking.
