These 20 brain teaser math puzzles will engage students as they think critically! The puzzles require students to analyze and reason – all skills they need for success across content areas. Students’ minds will be stimulated and challenged as they use logic to figure out the value of each symbol included in a puzzle. All games have an emoji theme, which appeal to students and make solving the puzzles fun and interesting!
Two puzzles are printed on each page, which make these great to use as task cards. Also included is a recording sheet, which has space for students to solve four problems at a time, drawing each emoji and writing its value. As our students learn more and more about the importance of developing a growth mindset, activities such as logic puzzles encourage them to stick with challenging tasks and learn from mistakes.
This resource includes 20 puzzles, instructions, and an answer key. Each puzzle includes 3 equations and symbols. Students analyze the equations to determine how to figure out the value of each symbol. Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division skills are all included and students also practice applying the order of operations in some puzzles.
It would be very helpful to students to model a similar problem and think through it with a small or whole group. This will help build confidence when students are expected to solve the problems on their own. This resource is great for math centers, small group instruction, and early finishers!
