For each 2-digit mystery number activity, your students will work step-by-step, using the clues to eliminate numbers and figure out which one is the mystery number. They will work with math vocabulary such as odd, even, greater than, less than, sum, difference, and much more. A fun, engaging way to build problem-solving skills too!

What Teachers Are Saying
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "My students have trouble with place value. This is a great resource to help them with place value concepts and determining which terms they do not understand." Georgann B.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "A fantastic resource to get my students thinking about numbers. They really enjoy using the clues to figure out the target number. Each time we do this they get better and more confident. We are doing this as a whole group activity right now but it could easily be used for remote learning if necessary. Thanks so much!" Karen G.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I work with students in an after school club ~ the students I used these cards with need extra practise in math. They love using these cards ~ and I make them work in pairs or small groups and they generate a lot of math discussion - and you can see the delight on their faces when find the right answer."
