For each Fraction Mystery Number activity, your students will work step-by-step, using the clues to eliminate fractions and figure out which one is the mystery number. They will work with math and fraction vocabulary such as odd, even, greater than, less than, equivalent fractions, and more. A fun, engaging way to build problem-solving skills too!

What Teachers Are Saying
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I use this resource 3 times a week while we are working on our fractions unit in 5th grade math. This helped the students to review some previously learned concepts as well as work on some new concepts." Whitney A.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I love using these as math warm-ups a few days a week. They really encourage students to put their fraction knowledge to use, as well as their vocabulary! We have wonderful discussions too. I've also assigned these for independent/partner practice to challenge students. Excellent resource!" Shelly P.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "My students have loved all of the Mystery Number activities! They groaned when they saw the fraction topic but since it was a Mystery Number problem and they were familiar with the procedure they were able to power through :) My students were beginning to learn strategy - not just moving through the clues in order! It was nice to see their problem solving growth! We would love more Mystery Number activities!!! Thank you!" Karen G.
