## Activity: Cross-Number Puzzle

Here’s a cross-number puzzle to give you some more practice using the calculator. It’s like a crossword puzzle, only with numbers instead of words. Draw the puzzle in your math notebook and then use the calculator to solve it. Do a few of the calculations in your head or on notebook paper, if you feel up to it. That makes great practice.

The calculator can be accessed on the left-hand side bar under Toolkit.

### Discussion

One great thing about cross-number puzzles is that hints are built into the puzzle. Most digits have to be correct in both directions, across and down.
