# ENGAGING MATH GAMES THAT MAKE LEARNING FUN!

MISSING NUMBER POEMS

Sandy Choi & Abigail Gavin

As part of her lesson plans, Mrs. Choi has begun teaching the students Missing Number poems, and we are excited to share this effort from her student, Abigail Gavin.

Missing number in the beginning do the inverse and you are winning.

__ -5 = 7, __ + 5 = 17, __5 = 30 , __ 5 = 30

Missing number in the middle, do a subtraction or division and solve the riddle.

12 - __ = 7, 12 + __ = 17, 150 __ = 30, 6 x __ = 30

Challenge to all the parents out there: Can you figure it out?

25 EQUATION BLOCK CHALLENGE

Asher Gray

.

How often do you hear that a class given 25 two-step math equations to solve is having so much fun that they won’t stop when the class ends?

Often, apparently, in Mr. Gray’s Math class.

“Not gonna lie. This is actually so much fun!” cried out a 6th graders in Mr. Gray’s Pre-Algebra class last week, as he and his teammates worked feverishly on their puzzle.

Each team

had to assemble their 5x5 square math puzzle, such that the equation on one side of each square would match up to the answer on the side of another square. Members of the group took turns solving equations, checking one another’s work and then matching squares to try to finish the puzzle. Great job Mr. Gray!
