Product Description
Place Value Number Puzzles are a fun, interactive way to challenge and engage your students. The 20 original puzzles are designed to build a solid understanding of place value and number sense, while also developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

How do Place Value Puzzles work?
Students use hands-on number tiles (digits 0-9) and a series of 4-6 clues to build the one correct 3-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 would round to 600 if rounded to the nearest hundred.
• All of the digits are odd.
• It is not a multiple of 5.
• It does not contain the missing digit in this equation: 63 ÷ ☐ = 7.
• The digit in the tens place is greater than the digit in the hundreds place.
• The sum of the digits is less than 15.
