Abstract

Magic squares are used as exercises in mental calculation and motivated practice in mathematical problem-solving. As such, they can be especially effective teaching tools in the beginning of the school year. When used for addition review, paper-and-pencil media are perhaps most appropriate for magic square work. But if you would rather emphasize the problem-solving aspects of magic square work (play?), some simple Logo tools can assist your students' exploration of these ancient puzzles.
