A Little Stumper to Get Them Thinking!
Whether you call it the problem of the week, the math challenge or the stumper, getting kids to engage in fun little stumpers is great brain food! Stumpers are great to help build logic, problem solving, critical thinking, deductive reasoning and inductive reasoning skills. Not only that, just like crossword puzzles, the more you do, the better you get at it. Of course, this also means that math scores will also improve! Need I say more?
Take the last coin at the end of the vertical row and place it on top of the 2nd coin in the vertical or horizontal row.
