33 printable pages for students to improve their problem solving. Each page has three toothpick problems in which students either add, remove or move toothpicks to create a new shape. Students have been solving these brain teasers for hundreds of years (in the old form of "matchstick" problems) and now you have 99 puzzles (and their solutions) to challenge your eager learners. Use at a math center, for homework, for the beginning of year, end of year, summer, or anytime. Take a look at the Preview to see sample pages
