An engaging route to learning, using math reasoning along the way. Start with the first number in a puzzle, fill in missing numbers, operation signs, or sometimes even the roads themselves, to end at the last number. The fun is in figuring out what will fit for the missing parts. Working both backwards and forwards, students develop an understanding of the relationships between addition and subtraction and between multiplication and division.
Although I have listed the grade range as 5th-8th, these puzzles can be fun challenges even for adults. Originally published by Nasco as Math Map Puzzles Level C, this resource includes 100 puzzles (2 per page). Please visit my TpT store for more puzzles: Evelyn Christensen Puzzles-Math-and-More
