These fun and challenging block math puzzles for kids will get students thinking about math problem-solving by performing the basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
These block puzzles make a great problem-solving challenge for students in 4th grade, 5th grade. Students must fill in digits 1-9 in the puzzles to make the six equations true. All four operations - adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing - are used to complete the puzzles. To add extra motivation, a riddle is introduced above the puzzles and the answer can be decoded by correctly figuring out where each digit is placed.
These problems are great for quick self-starts, warm-ups, centers, groups, individual enrichment or productive time fillers. The worksheets can be printed in color or grayscale with good results.
