Number Star Math Puzzles challenge students to use their calculation skills, logic, visualizing patterns, problem solving and planning.
This FREEBIE includes a sample of 3 Number Star Puzzles, and answer key. It includes one puzzle from each of my first three sets.
These puzzles require students to place the numbers from the Number Bank into the circles so that they add up to the totals in the corresponding star point, and also have the five outer circles adding up to the total in the center star.
Puzzle A-1 uses the numbers 1-15
Puzzle B-1 uses the numbers 1-5
Puzzle C-1 uses the numbers -7 through 8
These puzzles can be used as enrichment, as part of a center activity, as a team challenge, or as an activity students can do if they finish work early.
