Cut the squares apart. Give each group one full set of the 16 cards.
Students should read the various questions on a square and find the matching answer on another square. As the students match the cards a 4 by 4 square will be formed. Notice that “PERCENTPARTWHOLE” is spelled out in a spiral in a counter clockwise direction. There are two similar sets included. One has blank edges and the other has unmatchable factors along the edge. Use these two sets to differentiate the activity. It is even possible to mix the two sets so that only half the boundary edges are blank. Print LANDSCAPE to maximize the size of the squares.
1. One puzzle would have answers on every edge of every piece.
2. One puzzle would have not answers or questions along the outside edges of the puzzle.
3. Replace the four corners only of the puzzle 1 and leave all the other pieces in place. This will make it easier for students to locate the four corners.
4. Replace the 8 outside middle pieces from puzzle 1 with the 8 outside middle pieces of puzzle 2. This will make it easier than puzzle 1.
Since the two 16 piece puzzles have the same questions you can make these switches between the two puzzles to differentiate the lesson.
