Magic Puzzle Boards Equivalent Decimals and Fractions

(0)
A fun game for students to practice finding equivalent values for decimals and fractions. Students place each puzzle piece so that each fraction or decimal is connected to an equivalent value. Pairs of equivalent values should be both vertical and horizontal. It is a self checking puzzle, since it can only be solved completely with correct combinations. Two levels of complexity Level 1: Benchmark & Unit Fractions and their Decimal Form Level 2: Non-Unit/Benchmark Fractions and their Decimal Form Puzzles with frames are included so that students can solve the puzzles quickly for 10-15 minute station work. Puzzles without frames give students a greater challenge and are more appropriate for group or 15-20 minute stations.

Volume of Rectangular Prisms Ninja Escape Maze!

(0)
These mazes are easy to set up and easy to use while providing practice for the skill of finding volume for rectangular prisms. Students are able to see that a particular volume can be reached by a variety of factors that equal the same product. This helps students identify commutativity with the factors. There are 4 game boards included. You can: Print each puzzle board, then laminate and let students use the tiger pieces to mark the correct spaces and the x’s for spaces that do not equal the target number. Or Print as worksheets on a full or half page and let students write directly on them.

Magic Puzzle Boards Mixed Numbers and Improper Fractions

(0)
A fun game for students to practice finding equivalent values for mixed numbers and improper fractions. Students place each puzzle piece so that each value is connected to an equivalent value. Pairs of equivalent values should be both vertical and horizontal. It is a self checking puzzle, since it can only be solved completely with correct combinations. Two levels of complexity Level 1: Fractions with benchmark denominants. Level 2: Fractions with whole number values greater than five and non benchmark denominants. Puzzles with frames are included so that students can solve the puzzles quickly for 10-15 minute station work. Puzzles without frames give students a greater challenge and are more appropriate for group or 15-20 minute stations.
Problem Solving Task- The Brownie Problem (Fractions-Multiplication/Division/Comparing)

Problem Solving Task- The Brownie Problem (Fractions-Multiplication/Division/Comparing)

(0)
As students engage in authentic problem solving, they learn how to apply the mathematics they learn in the classroom to the world beyond! Students must determine who received a greater portion of a tray of brownies in task. -This task encourages students to apply their fraction sense to determine when and how to appropriately multiply and divide whole numbers and fractions. -Additionally, students will compare two unit fractions to determine which is greater. This PowerPoint includes teacher facilitation questions, a guide to understanding the mathematics in the problem, a scaffolded approach to problem solving, and possible solutions. This is the method I use to help my students engage deeply in problem solving and stretch themselves beyond "number plugging" as many students do when they solve a "word problem". I have included a powerpoint version as well as a printable .pdf to fit the needs of your classroom.

Ordering Decimal Numbers to the Thousandths Place Self Checking Puzzles

Great for Stations or a Class Wide "Scoot" with Partners! These puzzles are easy to set up and self checking! To set them up just print (two sided), cut them out, and paperclip the sets together or sort into small baggies. Then students can organize them in order from least to greatest. If they think they are in the right order they flip them over and look for the message on the back. If the message makes sense, then they have them in the right order. If not, they should flip them over and try again. A student recording sheet and key is also included! :)

Divisibility: Lesson Plan and Activity, Graphic Organizer, Posters, and Game!

(0)
This bundle includes everything you need to help students construct an understanding of divisibility! Lesson Plan and Activity: Students are guided to test over 45 numbers for divisibility for numbers 1-10. They then use the numbers that are divisible by each divisor to develop a rule for each (as a class). This is a FUN activity which promotes active learning with a high engagement rate. Graphic Organizer: There are two front options and three options for the inside so you can customize how much you want your students to take notes vs. focus on creating the rules as a class. This aides in differentiation and can be a great time saver! Posters: There are four color posters which can be hung vertically to remind students of the divisibility rules from 1-10 (7 and 8 excluded). These are great when teaching about simplifying fractions and working with division/estimation. Game: The Tiger Escape Game which I have included allows students to practice what they have learned in a fun, easy to set up game. Students use their divisibility rules to move the tiger through the game board while checking to see which of the spaces along the path are divisible by the numbers 1-10 (7 and 8 excluded).
