I also created some 1-9 cards to fit exactly in the exponent boxes of the powers of i activity. This helps ensure that students use each number at most once. Plus, I just like puzzles with moveable pieces!
The yearly number challenge is a simple to explain puzzle that will keep you captivated for hours. Using the digits in the current year exactly one time each, can you write a mathematical expression for each digit between 1 and 100? You may use any mathematical symbol or operation of your choosing.
One student from the group would tend to spend the entire time running answers up to my desk and getting them checked before marking off their numbers on the chart. This meant that there was still a student who was primarily doing no math at all.
I intentionally do not make answers to the printable math puzzles I share on my blog available online because I strive to provide learning experiences for my students that are non-google-able. I would like other teachers to be able to use these puzzles in their classrooms as well without the solutions being easily found on the Internet. However, I do recognize that us teachers are busy people and sometimes need to quickly reference an answer key to see if a student has solved a puzzle correctly or to see if they have interpreted the instructions properly.If you are a teacher who is using these puzzles in your classroom, please send me an email at email@example.com with information about what you teach and where you teach. I will be happy to forward an answer key to you.
These puzzles come in various forms and can have a nearly limitless number of different themes. But, at their core, logic puzzles present a series of clues and constraints. Solvers then must process each in turn to identify contradictions and eliminate possibilities until they arrive at the solution.
You'll only have six numbers and three codes to enter - but the answer key is actually right in front of you: Scrawled to the right side of the map by the safe are three different triangles featuring the same symbols drawn on the map where the plaques were located (the ring and the skull), and a different amount of lines on each triangle point (0, 1, 2). 2b1af7f3a8
