## Description

### Class Experience

```Students will develop a positive attitude toward math by engaging in fun, challenging activities that they can feel success and ownership in.

Students will utilize spatial-relational skills, persistence, and patience to solve the puzzles.

Students will develop and practice logical problem-solving skills.

Students will progress to finding the most elegant solutions to the problem, and will be able to distinguish those solutions from the inelegant ones that minimally meet the challenge requirements.

Students will use geometric vocabulary and logical thinking when working on these challenges.

Students will flexibly think of number and operation in order to solve a problem.

Students will flexibly think of materials they have that they could use to help solve a problem.

Students will recognize that there are many different ways to solve problems and to communicate thinking about those solutions.```
