Product Description
Try these fun but challenging math picture puzzles! Students use algebraic thinking to determine values of pictures and solve addition, subtraction, and multiplication equations. They sharpen critical-thinking and problem-solving.

Resource Details

This set includes a 3rd grade and a 4th-grade picture puzzle. They encourage kids to think critically and use logic, problem-solving, and algebraic reasoning skills. The key to each puzzle allows students to determine values of pictures. Those values are then used in completing basic operations equations. This is challenging enough, but there are more twists. The pictures might change slightly - thus changing the values and the solutions to the puzzles. The stimulating pictures and altered images require close observation and detective work to successfully solve the puzzles. Not only do students sharpen skills of adding, subtracting, and multiplying, but they must think algebraically. The result is a highly motivating and effective math exercise.


These puzzles are great for extensions, enrichment, centers, group work, individual enrichment or productive time fillers. The worksheets can be printed in color or grayscale with good results. Each puzzle provides immediate feedback by using a QR code. Full detailed answer keys are also provided.
