Magic StarThis is a math/logic puzzle. Each line of the star and the enclosing circle need to have the numbers rearranged on them until they add up to 26. The resource will keep track of the addition and show when lines totalling 26 have been created. Note that when these lines illuminate it only shows that they add up to 26 – not that they are in the correct place for the whole of the puzzle.
Route FinderThis is designed to test your thinking skills. Choose your starting point from any of the circular nodes on the grid. You must then visit each straight section in only 19 moves. They will fade out to show they have been visited. As there are 17 straight pieces and the minimum you can complete this puzzle in is 19, you will obviously have to revisit a couple of straight sections. You can only move along the grid lines one circle at a time and each of these counts as one move.
Flip OverAnother counter sorting puzzle. You must arrange the pattern of shapes so that there are 4 octagons followed by 4 stars with the 2 blanks on the far right. The twist with this puzzle is that every time you move the two shapes they flip relative positions. This makes it a bit harder to visualise your strategy and offers a simple to understand, but challenging to solve, puzzle. The top blue bar lets you select which two shapes to move the lower blue bar will move the selected two shapes. You must always move two shapes.
Lock DownA magic square maths variation on the sliding puzzle used in the Letter Blocks resource. Take up the challenge of making each row, column and the two diagonal lines add up to 12. The catch is that one of the numbers cannot move and must be locked before the tiles can start to be moved. After this the puzzle works like any other slide puzzle where you must try to meet the finishing condition by sliding the tiles into position. The blank counts as zero for working out the sums. The puzzle can be solved in just 19 moves but a good way to solve it is to try to work out the correct finish position first and, from that, which tile never moves. Tapping a tile will cause it to move into the blank if its a valid horizontal or vertical move.
