Digital math activities can be so much more than just entering an answer in a text box. In fact, digital math activities can be “hands-on” just like math centers. This post will share one of my new favorite digital math activities: Mystery Pictures (with free basic multiplication practice ones to use right away)!
About the Digital Math Mystery Image Activities
To complete this digital math activity, the students will solve problems to reveal a mystery picture.
They will answer a math problem, find the answer, and then move the correct answer tile to cover the problem.
When they are finished, their tiles should reveal a complete picture. This will allow them to then confirm or fix their answers.
Note: The free ones I currently have ready are for practicing basic multiplication facts, but I hope to create more for other skills in the future.
There are two versions included in the free download:
Version 1 – no extra solution tiles. This is 100% self-checking.
Version 2 – includes 4 extra solution tiles. This version should still be self-checking because I manipulated the extra pieces by turning them. However, I can’t test out every possible combination that a student might do, so be aware of that.
Use both versions (as a way to differentiate) by making two copies of the activity. For one copy, delete version 2 and name it Version 1. For the other, delete version 1, and name it Version 2. Then assign them as needed to your students.

Assigning in Google Slides
Assigning in Canvas
To assign in Canvas, follow these steps.
- Click the link to copy the Google Slides to your drive.
- Download the Google Slides in a Powerpoint Version by clicking File > Download > Mircrosoft Powerpoint
- Save the Powerpoint version to your computer.
- Upload the Powerpoint as a file in your assignment. The students will need to be given the directions to download the Powerpoint, save it to their computer, complete the activity, and save it again before uploading.
If you are an experienced Canvas user and know a better more efficient way, let us know in the comments! I am not proficient with this platform at all. 🙂
