Puzzles Explained with Exploding Dots

ByJames Tanton

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This book offers a sample of puzzles—some classic, some new—that can be beautifully analyzed and well understood with an Exploding Dots approach. Each piece begins with a discussion on introducing the puzzle to students along with some possible thoughts, questions, and reactions students might have to the puzzles. The solutions are presented in the second half of this document, as well as extensions to explore. The suggested age levels are very loose! Many elementary grade students will enjoy a number of these puzzles and any puzzle labeled for a certain grade level, when probed more deeply, can unfold to more challenging queries. Do indeed look at the suggested puzzle extensions. The mathematics of Exploding Dots appears on our website: www.globalmathproject.org. Enjoy!
