Week 4 Puzzles

Each week I am planning on giving you a few optional, fun mathy activities you could work on if you are looking for something to do while at home!

Desmos: Zukei Puzzles

Below is a quick video on how to do this type of puzzle.


You can play this on the computer, but it is also an app you can download on your phone.

Math Art Challenge

My friend Annie Perkins has created some different Math Art activities for people to work on while we’re all spending a lot of time at home right now. If you create anything, please take a picture of it and email it to me!


THE CHALLENGE: Create your very own tessellation from a small piece of cardboard.

  1. Start with a square (Cereal or pop box cardboard works great) Annie’s was 2”x2”
  2. Cut a piece from one side and tape it to an adjacent side.
  3. Repeat for remaining 2 edges.
  4. Trace!

MATERIALS NEEDED: Pencil, paper, and cardboard from a cereal box or a pop box or something similarly thin but stiff enough to trace.

Thanks to Annie Perkins for sharing!
