Day 162: Number Puzzle

Here is a fun number puzzle I gave algebra today. It was interesting that in general my higher end students struggled to find the pattern, while the lower end picked up quickly.

  1. I love this – I remember using something like this at the end of an exam in a gifted Geometry class, and the students who ‘overthought’ it struggled greatly. Thanks for giving me a fun puzzle for Friday afternoon!
