I am so hooked on using Brain Teasers with kids!
I love seeing there faces light up when they are given a challenge to solve!
Sometimes you can almost see their little brains ticking over!
They get so much from Brain Teasers
- the chance to apply math skills,
- they develop strategic thinking
- the opportunity to develop thinking skills
- they also learn to 'think out of the box'.
Each child has a BT book (short for Brain Teasers of course) so that they can be a bit messy when it comes to working out the brain teaser. If they need to draw a diagram or have several attempts as they 'guess and check' it doesn't matter if they are a bit messy!
I am always designing Brain Teasers but until now I hadn't put them all together in one collection!
Finally (after starting this project in 2007) I have a collection of math brain teasers!
I am celebrating completing this collection and my birthday which falls on Friday 13 this year! (how lucky for me)
My new collection of Brain Teasers is now available at
Math Problems and Brain Teasers Cards.
Please consider trying Brain Teasers in your classroom if you haven't already!
You won't regret it!
