It’s time for math class, and your students are bored.
It might sound harsh, but it’s true — only about half of students report being engaged at school, and engagement levels only drop as students get older.
Math puzzles are one of the best — and oldest — ways to encourage student engagement. Brain teasers, logic puzzles and math riddles give students challenges that encourage problem-solving and logical thinking. They can be used in classroom gamification, and to inspire students to tackle problems they might have previously seen as too difficult.
