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 #5 reads:

• The number is greater than the number of sides on a trapezoid.

• The mystery number is less than the perimeter of a 6 by 6 array.

• None of the digits are even.

• The sum of the digits equals 8.

The focus is on numbers and operations, yet students also need to apply geometry, measurement, perimeter, and academic math vocabulary in order to solve this puzzle.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
Identify arithmetic patterns (including patterns in the addition table or multiplication table), and explain them using properties of operations. For example, observe that 4 times a number is always even, and explain why 4 times a number can be decomposed into two equal addends.
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8.
Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7.
