This resource includes 20 higher order thinking puzzles designed to challenge and engage your high flyers. Your students will utilize critical thinking and problem solving skills while building a deeper understanding of numeracy and place value. Each of the 20 activities offers an interesting, non-routine way to explore essential math concepts and skills.

Each Hundred Board puzzle provides a series of 4-6 mathematical clues. Students use the clues to determine the value of the mystery number. While the focus of each activity is numeracy, the 20 riddles include a variety of upper elementary math skills, concepts, and vocabulary to promote integrated learning and challenge.

For example, puzzle #8 reads:

• It is greater than the number of years in a decade.

• It does not contain the digit that equals the number of sides on a rhombus.

• It is not between the value of 4 nickels and 4 dimes.

• The digit in the ones place = the number of inches in ½ a foot.

• The sum of the digits is < 11.
