Activity Alert: Cross-Number Puzzle

By Mathnasium | Added Dec 21, 2022


It’s Crossword Puzzle Day! And rather than celebrating with a standard word game, we have a Cross-Number activity that is sure to tickle the grey matter.

Download our variation on this popular puzzle (below) to get started. Together with your child, identify all the horizontal and vertical equations. You may choose to solve the “easier” problems first. Then, as you gain momentum (and confidence in your skills!), you’ll be able to solve the whole thing. Do your best to use only mental math and, once complete, compare your answers with our answer key.
