Challenge learners with puzzles that apply and strengthen problem solving using basic math operations and logic thinking skills.
Activity puzzles can be used as extension anchor activities, learning stations or as whole-group problem solving practice. Book includes 40 activities with 3 leveled problems per activity. Learners use all four basic math operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to manipulate four numbers to equal the answer 24 in every puzzle. Teach reoccurring recognizable combinations that form 24 and discuss strategies to form these patterns. Multiple answers to many problems encourage flexibility in thinking.
Colorful green chevron number cards are included with book to create an interactive easy-to-change classroom bulletin board to post puzzles.
Blank template also provided to allow students to create and solve their own made-up Challenge 24 puzzles.
