- Magic Squares
- How can we help our students to develop those important skills with numbers and computation, without boring them with drillnkill worksheets? One answer is magic squares. The construction and analysis of magic squares provides practice in mental arithmetic, operations with numbers, geometry, and measurement, and encourages logical reasoning and creativity, all in a game-like setting. Each student can proceed at his or her own pace. Best of all, the students correct their own work; finding errors is part of the process.
