It's fantastic to see so many teachers and parents worldwide using my math mystery resources with their kids. I've been creating these mystery math activities for over seven years and selling the packets on my TPT store and website shop. I've read feedback comments left on these math resources; while I've seen it successful for most, I'll be honest in saying that a few encountered a problem or two. If this includes you, there's a chance that you might be making one of these math mystery mistakes. Read on to find out how to avoid these common math mystery mistakes and make the most out if these math resources.
One of the biggest challenges with teaching is differentiating within a large class, especially when there is a broad scope of abilities and levels! Once upon a time, I was in a teaching role that involved seeing 220 students a week across K-6! I had to teach different math topics to other groups and wouldn't have much time to prep from class to class. Being the teacher kids only saw once a week for a couple of hours meant that I needed a lesson that would quickly engage them to make the most of our learning time. This teaching experience is why I decided to create Math Mysteries. To differentiate and cater to the different classrooms, I usually designed editions of the same mystery in various grade levels. This post will show you how easy it is to differentiate with my math mystery resources in your classroom. I'll also show you where to grab a full FREE differentiated Math Mystery set to see how it works!
I've recently released a short video clip to help introduce your students to Math Mysteries. If it is their first time completing a math mystery, especially via online distance learning, it might be a little daunting. I hope this video helps assist you in your instruction when assigning a math mystery in the classroom or online. You can view and download the video free within this post.
