Math History-Mystery Puzzles connect mathematics to other disciplines, inspirational individuals, historical & current events, social justice issues, and pop culture. Students solve math clues to find each Mystery Year. See the YouTube preview for a glimpse of the April puzzles.
- Each puzzle requires the critical reading of a passage and the solving of math clues based on middle-school skills and concepts correlated to the Common Core State Standards.
- As each clue is solved, students record a digit of the Mystery Year in a place-value chart at the bottom of the page. The final clue provides a “check” for determining the correct Mystery Year.
