Puzzles and Logic

Note: Students choose one of blocks 2 or 8

Learning how to solve puzzles and win strategy games is not only fun, but it also strengthens critical thinking and reasoning skills. By exploring some of the classic riddles, problems, and strategy games of mathematics history, students develop oral and written communication skills as they are asked to defend their thinking and explain their solution strategies. Students also explore multiple ways to approach logic problems, with an emphasis on clear organization of work and given information.
