For her fourth grade math class, Satori’s homework involved making a math puzzle that she would put on the wall for the other students to solve. She had some ideas, but wanted my help “making it creative”. Last week I helped her write a poem to put on the wall in a creative way, so I guess she figured I’d make this project look cool too. Although I really shouldn’t help so much with her homework in the future, I couldn’t resist.

We have her a mystery five digit number. In between the purple lines are clues to fill in all the digits. The creative touches to our number puzzle include magnetic numbers, we included just the five digits of her final number, but the person doing the puzzle would have to snap them in place. We used real coins as well as a real foam polygon shape. The picture is Satori and her teacher I took on the first day.
