Balance Math™ & More!

These fun, engaging books are comprised of 3 types of math puzzles. The puzzles sharpen students' critical thinking, computational, and algebraic reasoning skills.

   1.  Balance Math Puzzles require students to analyze balances to deduce the missing value
   2.  Inside-Out Math Puzzles require students to reverse their thinking, using the inverse relationships between addition and subtraction and multiplication and division to solve the puzzle.
   3.  Tic Tac Math Puzzles require students to figure out the correct order to complete all rows, columns, and diagonals.

Each Balance Math & More! book focuses on a different set of math concepts:
     •  Level 1 (Grades 2-5) focuses on addition and subtraction of whole numbers.
     •  Level 2 (Grades 4-12) focuses on multiplication and division of whole numbers, but has a few problems involving fractions.
     •  Level 3 (Grades 6-12+) involves addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication as well as fractions and decimals.

Each book's spiraling difficulty level is designed to scaffold a student's conceptual understanding of the targeted operations. Teaching suggestions and detailed solutions are included in each book. Try one of these intriguing puzzles—and then try to stop!
