5 teaser – Maths puzzle

February 10, 2013

I was fortunate enough to spend some time with Paul Godding at a primary school and got the 7puzzle experience. In the sessions, Paul made use of a variety of puzzles including his own creations 7 puzzle and mathematically possible. These went down really well and were brilliant as team games – the students were really engaged. As a result, I bought a copy of the simpler 5 teaser as it’s aimed at younger children and mine are 5 and 3 years old. The pictures show solutions of some of the multiple puzzles done by my children. They are very accessible and I think have a lot of scope to develop as to start with we focus on colours and shapes while eventually the numbers will come in to play with mathematically possible style problems. At present, we’re trying challenges such as ‘cover all spaces so that the 5 remaining squares show circles/red background’. We’ll progress to puzzles like ‘so that the remaining 5 squares can be combined to make the target score of 37 (say)’. Years of fun to come!
