FUN NUMBER PUZZLES
Monster Multiply & Search is a fun way to help reinforce basic multiplication facts of times tables facts 6-10. The puzzles work just like a word search puzzle except they use numbers instead of words. There are two puzzles for each number. For example, the first set has 7 x 6,
7 x 7, 7 x 8, and 7 x 9 and the second set has 6 x 7, 7 x 7, 8 x 7, 9 x 7, etc.
• Answers are found from left to right and from top to bottom. There are no problems that go diagonally, backwards, or from bottom to top.
• Students complete the twelve multiplication problems at the top of each page and
write their answers on the lines provided. Ask them to look for number patterns
in their answers.
• Students then search for each multiplication problem, circle the two factors and
the product, and put in the (x) sign and (=) sign.
• As each fact is found, students place a check mark by the problem listed at the top
of the puzzle.
• An answer sheet is provided for each Monster Multiply & Search puzzle so students can check their own work as they finish each puzzle.
