SolveMe Mobiles Math Puzzles

In my continuing effort to close some of the many tabs I have open after the last two weeks of in depth professional development meetings, I wanted to share the SolveMe Mobiles math puzzle website that was shared with me during the math workshop we hosted. It is a website offered by Education Development Center, Inc., who "designs, implements, and evaluates programs to improve education, health, and economic opportunity worldwide." [source]


The premise is fairly simple. You are given a mobile that has beams balanced under a number. Then you need to use your deduction skills to determine what the values of the different shapes are. The more you answer, the harder they get. There are 164 SolveMe puzzles and then even more available through the community. For students who need to be challenged even more, they can create their own puzzles to post in the SolveMe community. The best thing is that SolveMe Mobiles is completely free and you don't need to create an account unless you want to track your progress.

I, for one, found it pretty addicting so I would imagine our students would, too.

Check it out and let me know what you think!
