Hidato, Numbrix, Kakuro, Fubuki, Shikaku, and Fillomino number puzzles

As a math teacher I have always been looking for printable number puzzles for my primary students (or older in case of tutoring). I think that math puzzles kind of 'hide' the original content and are excellent math facts skill builders and can greatly enhance estimation skills. Problem is that there are not a lot of free printable puzzles online except for Sudoku and some Kakuro puzzles.

I have, therefor, put a lot of effort in producing these puzzles my self. You can find free and printable Kakuro, Hidato, Nubrix, Shikaku, Fillomino and Fubuki puzzles at my modest math website: www.mathinenglish.com

Please feel free to use them and give me some feedback. My students love them and I am developing a lot more (Nikoli) puzzles!

All the best,

Hi kireb;

Some nice puzzles there!


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

hi kireb

Wow!  That's a lot of puzzles.  It must have taken a long time to set up all of those!  smile

I'll pass the details of your site on to my local school.
