Make math centers easier and keep your students engaged and excited about learning decimal division with this activity. Students will match the division problem with its quotient (answer) to complete a puzzle! When all puzzle pieces are put together, the puzzle forms a big triangle, parallelogram, or a hexagon! Problems include decimal dividends and single-digit whole number divisors where annexing a zero is required. This is a great activity to practice annexing a zero in decimal division. This activity is optimal for students working in groups of 2-3.
This pack includes 3 different puzzles, each containing DIFFERENT division problems. Each puzzle, when put together, is a different shape. The shapes include:
- 1 Big Triangle (dividends expressed to the tenths; quotients expressed to the hundredths)
- 1 Parallelogram (dividends expressed to the hundredths; quotients expressed to the thousandths)
- 1 Hexagon (a mix of dividends expressed to the tenths and hundredths; quotients expressed to the hundredths and thousandths)
ALL division problems include ANNEXING a zero.
**Includes the following files:
-puzzle solutions (3)- One for each shape
-puzzle printable "output" documents (3)- These are the documents that contain the puzzle pieces (the pieces on the output sheet will not match up- these are the pieces that need to be cut)
-puzzle problems in table form (can be used as flashcards or cut up and used as a matching activity)
