Welcome to Mathnasium’s Math Tricks series. Today we are calculating the probability of two independent events.
It’s Crossword Puzzle Day! And rather than celebrating with a standard word game, we have a Cross-Number activity that is sure to tickle the grey matter.
Download our variation on this popular puzzle (below) to get started. Together with your child, identify all the horizontal and vertical equations. You may choose to solve the “easier” problems first. Then, as you gain momentum (and confidence in your skills!), you’ll be able to solve the whole thing. Do your best to use only mental math and, once complete, compare your answers with our answer key.
Follow our Number Sense Blog for more math activities or visit a Mathnasium Center nearest you.
Mathnasium meets your child where they are and helps them with the customized program they need, for any level of mathematics.
