Product Description
LOGICAL REASONING
Winter, Christmas Fun for the Holidays.

We’ve all seen them on the internet and Facebook - puzzles that ask people to figure out the value of some expression … it’s great to see people being challenged to use math!

These puzzles make great starters for mathematical conversations; for a MATH Talk or for warm-ups.

It’s amazing to listen as students reason out the solutions. Some may use algebra (systems of equations) to solve, while others will use deductive reasoning —- listen closely as they discuss their processes. You may discover “geniuses” that you didn’t know existed in your class!

Keep a supply on hand for math centers or for early finishers - the possibilities are many.

There are 30 winter-themed puzzles.
Each puzzle has three symbols; each symbol has a unique value.
Three equations are given to discover the value of each symbol.
The goal is to find the value of each symbol and then use those values to evaluate the last expression. Easy to grade (just check the last value).

The puzzles have increasing difficulty;
- puzzles 101-110 include integer values only.
- puzzles 201-210 include decimal values - only one symbol per puzzle will have a decimal value.
- puzzles 301-310 include negative integers - only one symbol per puzzle will have a negative value.

BONUS:
a PowerPoint is also included.
