These puzzles are designed to help students find the least common multiple of a set of numbers. Four puzzles are provided. The letter in the center of each square allows the teacher to easily grade student work. Answer keys are provided.
These puzzles are available in both color and black and white. An optional "Answer Sheet" is provided that students can use to paste their answers.
There are two different levels of difficulty. Puzzles #1 and #2 are easier and require student to find the least common multiple of two numbers. Puzzles #3 and #4 require students to find the least common multiple of three numbers and are ideal for more advanced students.
The puzzles in this set align with the following Common Core State Standards: 4.OA.B.4, 6.NS.B.4
In order to help my students find the least common multiple of to numbers I like to provide my students with dry erase templates that they can use. You can find these templates here.
