Product Description
2-Digit Number Puzzles are a fun, interactive way to challenge and engage your students. The 20 original puzzles are designed to develop fluidity, flexibility, and confidence with numbers, while also building critical thinking and problem solving skills.

How do Number Puzzles work?
Students use hands-on number tiles (digits 0-9) and a series of 4-6 clues to build the one correct 2-digit number that meets the given criteria.

Each number puzzle includes a variety of math concepts, skills, and vocabulary to nurture a strong understanding of numbers, number operations, and number patterns. For example, puzzle #2 reads:

• It is an odd number.
• It is less than the value of 5 dimes.
• The digit in the tens place is > the digit in the ones place.
• Only one digit is odd.
• The sum of the digits is 7.
