Subtracting Fractions with Like Denominators
This 30 problem subtracting fraction puzzle is ideal for engaging math center work. Problems ask students to subtract fractions with the same denominator. This puzzle can be used by small groups, partners, or individual students. Also works great for those fast finishers!

• Also included is an interactive notebook activity and an answer template (for students who have trouble with spacial awareness) that could be used as a formative assessment.
• Puzzle pieces come pre-mixed up so that students can cut them out and not have prior knowledge of the answers.
• The puzzle can be printed double sided with the puzzle on one side and the skill name on the other for ease of organizing and sorting.
• I suggest printing on colored paper and laminating the puzzle pieces for durability.

The individual triangles form a self checking hexagon shape once all the problems are solved.

I always get a cheer when these come out, definite class favorites!
