This is another version of my original Integer Diamond Problems. There are 32 more problems!
I teach an accelerated 6th grade math class and we cover integer operations which is part of the 7th grade common core. The following activity, Integer Diamond Problems, gives students the opportunity to practice integer operations. I created this activity because I had used diamond problems before and I wanted an activity that used whole number integers. This activity also helps students to prepare for factoring and foiling in 8th grade. Each diamond is split into four squares. The left and right square have an integer, the top square is the product of the integers and the bottom square is the sum of the integers. Students are only given two out of the four squares and have to fill in the remaining blank squares.
I have used this in my classroom and it has been successful. I plan to use it throughout the year involving variables and fractions.
