Puzzling Columns

Use these math-based puzzles, problems, and brainteasers as icebreakers, transition fillers, and ready-made math challenges -- to help answer the age-old kids' question: 'Why do we need to learn Math?'




Directions: The table below contains 16 squares. One shape is in each square. Color all the shapes in the first row blue. Color the shapes in the second row red. Color the shapes in the third row green. Color the shapes in the fourth row yellow. Then cut the table into 16 squares. On a separate sheet of paper, rearrange the 16 squares to create a new pattern. Sound easy?
Here’s the trick: No row or column can have two pieces of the same
color or shape. Are you up to the challenge?
