These puzzles are designed to allow students to practice graphing ordered pairs on the coordinate plane in all four quadrants. In addition, students will be reviewing area concepts by calculating the area of the figure created when the points are connected.
There are 8 puzzles where the students plot the points and find the area. There are a variety of shapes from triangles to trapezoids.
There are 4 puzzles that involve composite shapes which will require students to either add two areas together or subtract one area from another.
There are 6 puzzles in which one of the points is missing and students have to determine which point (or points in some cases) will finish the figure.
Coordinate grids are provided with each puzzle which make these ideal homework, classwork (you could print one set and put them in page protectors or communicators and use with dry erase markers), small group instruction, etc.
Where applicable, answers have been provided (in some cases there are multiple solutions).
