This Halloween math freebie includes a math challenge problem focused on place value and logical thinking.

If you’re short on time, you can even project the math problem onto your screen or white board instead of using printed copies. Then have students work it out on white boards. Just click Ctrl+L to display the problem page and you’re all set.
A fun Halloween number talk is ready in seconds!
