**Here are a few ideas for how you might use these challenges and brainteasers in your own classroom:**

*Use these as extension activities for **math contracts**. Make a pack of challenge problems for advanced students to use as a fast finisher or during certain in-class math lessons when they’ve already mastered the material. You can **read more** about this strategy and **receive a free editable math contract at my blog HERE**.

*Use a challenge or brainteaser as a **homework option** for students who need a challenge, or let them replace a simple homework assignment with the challenge to show parents how well you’re differentiating.

*Use a math challenge or brainteaser as a** “number talk”** problem to start out your daily math class. Work through it as a class or let students work in partners or small groups to talk through it and solve it together.

*Give a challenge or brainteaser to a small group of students as one of their **independent math workshop rotations** or use them with your **advanced small math group** rotation.

*Use the problems as an independent practice activity during a **unit on problem solving strategies** (guess and check, work backwards, etc.) or attacking a multi-step problem.

*Keep a stack of challenge problems in your classroom fast finisher area for any student who wants a challenge.

*Choose one or two challenge problems for the month and reward any student who can solve both. You can put these on a** bulletin board** or have them available as** additional incentives**.
