Problem of the Week
Problem A
Indoor Recess

It has been a wet spring so far. It has rained so much that the students at Rising Up Academy were not able to go outside for recess for a whole week, from Monday to Friday. Instead the students chose from the following indoor activities: matching game, Pictionary, checkers, building blocks, and origami. Carlo did a different indoor activity each day.

Using the following clues, determine which indoor activity Carlo did each day.

  1. On either Tuesday or Friday Carlo played with the building blocks.

  2. Carlo did origami the day before he played the matching game.

  3. On Thursday Carlo did not play Pictionary.

  4. Carlo played the matching game two days before he played checkers.
