We designed these Logic Puzzle Group Activities because...
Hi! We're Rick Scarfi & Linda Kardamis, the father-daughter team behind MathLight! Our years in the classroom taught us that sometimes students need just a little more practice to really grasp a new concept. And engaging and appealing practice makes all the difference.
As teachers, we know the routine - direct instruction, individual practice, formative assessment, and remediation. But sometimes you just need more!
That's how Logic Puzzle Group Activities were born!
These activities reinforce key middle school math concepts while also increasing students' motivation with their unique and engaging forma.t increases motivation while providing
Each student is responsible for his/her own practice problems, but teammates are invested in helping each other fix mistakes because the group is relying on correct answers to solve the puzzle. On top of that, problem solving and communication skills improve as students are forced to truly work together to unravel the mystery.
Best of all, the Logic Puzzle Group Activities are so fun for students, teachers report students actually asking for more!
Experience truly engaging practice by making these logic puzzle activities a recurring highlight in your classroom.

These activities pair perfectly with pre-algebra, but work great for all middle school grades. Younger students enjoy the challenge, and Algebra 1 students can use the extra practice and review. View the full list of topics here.
Sure! One student working individually could absolutely enjoy this activity. He or she would simply complete all three practice sets (a total of 18 problems) then use the clues to solve the puzzle.
Yes! Worked out solutions are included for all problems and corresponding clues are highlighted. A solution to the logic puzzle is also included for your use.
Logic Puzzles will take anywhere from 20-40 minutes based on how quickly and accurately your students solve the skill problems and can work out the solution to the Logic Puzzle.
You could assign a few groups of two and have those students work 9 problems each. Alternatively you could make a group of 4 with two students solving the same set of problems simultaneously.
If the logic puzzle is solved incorrectly it most likely means one of the practice problems has a mistake. Hand them a new copy of the logic puzzle grid and send them back to try again. You could also scan their pages and perhaps say “Sleuth #2 has made a mistake in a problem” to help guide them.
