All of them are great classroom resources for teaching primary grade children. All these puzzles hone your child’s logical reasoning abilities as well as calculation skills.

The rules are simple. Some numbers are already filled-in in a 3x3 square. You have to fill in the rest of the numbers so that the sum is the same across each row and each column. At each point, finding which cell to fill requires logical reasoning skills. Deriving the number requires mental math abilities.
