Product Description
Brain puzzles are one of my favorite ways to informally introduce mathematical reasoning sprinkled with a tiny hint of proofs. They get kids talking about the WHY of numbers and give them practice defending their ideas. If there’s a mistake, it’s a perfect space for conversation. I also love that one problem can result in multiple answers! They are a great way to meet the Standards for Mathematical Practice, particularly MP.3.

How do I use this in my classroom?
These cards can be used in so many ways! I particularly enjoy using these cards in centers, small groups, or on indoor recess days. I also like to show one class wide when we have a few extra minutes, but not necessarily enough time to start a whole new subject.

How does this product help meet the CCSS standards?
MP.3: Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
A perfect way for students to discuss their answers, how they got them, and if there are any other possible solutions!
