Looking for a fun way to review important math computational skills? These Tangram Puzzles motivate students to practice without the monotony of another β€œskill and drill” worksheet. Students solve the problems so they can put each puzzle together, revealing the shape. Use them as a math center, a review activity, a challenge task, or for early finishers.

Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.
Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (𝘒/𝘣 = 𝘒 ÷ 𝘣). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. For example, interpret 3/4 as the result of dividing 3 by 4, noting that 3/4 multiplied by 4 equals 3, and that when 3 wholes are shared equally among 4 people each person has a share of size 3/4. If 9 people want to share a 50-pound sack of rice equally by weight, how many pounds of rice should each person get? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘒/𝘣 + 𝘀/π˜₯ = (𝘒π˜₯ + 𝘣𝘀)/𝘣π˜₯.)
Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
