Description

Number puzzles are great fun to solve, but this study takes the student further by investigating the inner workings of the puzzles.

The investigation begins with notice and exploration. In noticing, student observation skills are honed. In exploration, students begin to see the inner workings by changing parts of the puzzle. In the comparison of puzzles, students notice more about the inner workings.

After in-depth discussions and manipulation of the magic square puzzles and other number puzzles, students have the opportunity to create their own puzzles.
