I am so happy I found out about esti-mystery challenges for my children. Yes, the basic subjects are a necessity. However, teaching those subjects in ways that can get them critically thinking is a goal of mine. For math, these free recording pages for esti-mystery challenges do just that.
Steve Wyborney developed esti-mystery challenges to help kids master meaningful math tasks. In a world where kids have to think quickly, find resolutions, and think outside of the box, these challenges are excellent. They help build those skills. The challenges allow kids to work on estimation skills while practicing math skills, number sense, and math vocabulary.
