Logic and Reasoning

November 18, 2009 at 10:36 am 2 comments

I love logic and reasoning questions, always fared far better with these questions than with other math problems.  I like puzzles and putting pieces together and looking at the details.  It is funny, as I can’t identify my right from my left quickly and when adding or multiplying numbers I sometimes still need to think of the little mnemonics that I learned but with logic and reasoning questions they come easy and I liked the challenge. 

Here is a problem that can be used with 4 – 6th graders.  Let them come up with their own system for figuring out the problem, if they are unable to do so then create a graph to help them. 

 You are the mail carrier and have a new route to learn.  Your first stop is the Uppin Arms apartment building.  There are 9 apartments in the building.  Read the clues to figure out who lives where. 

1.  The Wallace Family lives in a corner on top.

2. The O’Briens live in between the Gorman & Wallace families.

3. Dr. Rivera and his family live in the center.

4. Ms. Stevens and her boys are on the right.

5. The Barons live directly under the Stevens.

6. The Gormans are directly above Mr. Como.

7. The Garvey and Baron apartments are touching.

8. Mr. And Mrs. Perez took over Mr. Paige’s first floor home.

9. Mr. Como lives to the left of Dr. Rivera, as you face the building.
