Everybody enjoys solving a good mystery or cracking a code, so shine up your Sherlock sleuthing skills with
Math Busters: Multiplication or Division! Each puzzle page includes a mystery question which young math students
work towards answering as they solve the problems. The Division mystery questions focus on fascinating facts
about animals. The Multiplication mysteries are a mixture from many different subject areas.
The puzzles also help students practice important map-reading skills. Each clue is given in terms of a north,
south, east or west direction. To solve the mystery, a student must follow the directions correctly and make their
way through a maze of letters.

Author's note: These books were originally published as Multiplication Mysteries and
Division Decoders by another company. I'm thrilled to have them in their new form and eager for many
students to enjoy the fun of learning from them.
Multiplication...“This book is dedicated to my brother Bill who has a wonderfully inquisitive mind and
to an omniscient God who has the answers to all the great mysteries of life.”
Division...“This book is dedicated to my brother Ross who enjoys all of nature and
to the Creator God who has filled our world with such amazing creatures.”
