Logic Puzzle Challenge!
Posted on 03/19/2021 SRES is challenging students to solve critical thinking logic puzzles.

Puzzles are great for improving your child's patience and they foster persistence. Logic puzzles enhance your child's reading ability and comprehension. They encourage deductive reasoning and problem solving and they inspire your child to think outside the box! Plus - they're fun!

LOGIC PUZZLE #8
Here is your new logic puzzle challenge to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Sam, Lisa, Jim, and Mary each found some shamrocks on St. Patrick's Day. Use these clues below fill in the blanks and figure out how many they each found:

• Lisa did not find the most shamrocks.
• Jim found an odd number of shamrocks (7).
• Mary did not find the most, nor did she find the least. We'll post the solution after we come back from Spring Break!

Here is your new logic puzzle challenge to celebrate Valentine's Day. To solve this puzzle, you need to find out what number each symbol represents. HINTS

• Start with 8 (second row). Love is the same number, so half of 8=4, which means Love=4.
• Next, look at the fourth row beginning with the heart symbol. If Love=4, that means the heart symbol minus 4 =1. The heart symbol=5.
Continue trying to figure out what number the other symbols (teddy bear and lovebirds) represent. Good luck!

We'll post the solution next week.

... LOGIC PUZZLE #6
Happy New Year Salt River! Here is your new logic puzzle challenge: Find the missing numbers 1, 2, 3 or 4. I gave you a detailed example to guide you. I also gave you some clues for your puzzle. Good Luck!  HINTS

• Start with the missing numbers 3 & 4. The first missing number is 4. It cannot be 3, since there is a 3 in the next row.
• Look at column 3. There is a 4 & 3, so the numbers 1 & 2 are missing; there is a 2 in first row, so the top number must be 1.

Keep solving for missing numbers, 1, 2, 3, or 4 by looking at what number is missing from each string.

... LOGIC PUZZLE #5
Using the totals along the side and bottom of the image, find out what number each symbol represents. Use the hints below if you need help! Have fun! We'll post the answers next week! HINTS

• Start with the bottom row of trees: 4 trees = 24; if this were a division problem it would look like 24÷4 =6 (so the number for trees is 6).
• Next, look at the third column with two trees and two snowmen that adds up to 18. We know that trees are the number 6. There are two trees (=12).
• There are two formulas for this column, and the first looks like this: 18-12=6. This means that two snowmen will add up to 6.
• The second formula looks like this: 6÷2=3 (so the number for snowman is 3).
• Using the same formula methods shown above, find the missing numbers for the lizard and the snowflake.
