Product Description
Tricky Tiles is a hands-on number sense activity that incorporates problem solving and mathematical reasoning. Each of the 12 activities will challenge and engage students as they arrange 10 number tiles (0-9) on a Halloween-themed coloring page so that all equations are correct and/or balanced. Afterwards, students reward themselves for a job well done by coloring the Halloween-themed page! This activity is a great alternative to drill and practice because it promotes critical mathematical thinking.

Tricky Tiles will make a great Halloween math center or option for early finishers. It is also No-Prep! Students simply cut off the strip at the bottom of the page, cut out the number tiles, and figure out how to place all numbers correctly. Once they have figured out where all 10 numbers belong, they glue them to the page.

Included with This Resource:

Rounding to the nearest 10 and 100 (4 pages)
2, 3, and 4 digit addition (4 pages)
2, 3, and 4 digit subtraction (4 pages)
Answer Keys for all pages (One answer key per page is provided. One possibility was tested for each example.)

Tips for Using Tricky Tiles with Your Students:

1. Model an example or complete an example as a whole group. This will help build confidence and students will know how to approach the activity independently.

2. Allow partners to solve the problems if necessary.

3. Work with students in math centers to help build their mathematical reasoning abilities.
