These fun and effective triangle math puzzles for kids will get students performing multi-step addition, subtraction, multiplication, division activities which, if done correctly, lead them to the answer to a riddle.
These 12 triangle math puzzle worksheets make a great basic operations practice for 4th grade and 5th grade. Students must determine the missing center number of the triangle by multiplying the two numbers on the left and then either adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing the number on the right. For motivation and fun, a riddle is presented at the beginning. The answers to the problems are matched with letters that form the answer to the riddle. Answer keys are also included.
These problems are great for quick self-starts, warm-ups, centers, groups, individual enrichment or productive time fillers. The worksheets can be printed in color or grayscale with good results.
These really challenged my students!
This was a helpful early finisher activity, as well as for students who wanted some extra bonus marks. Highly recommend - very organized!
Love this. Perfect for displaying student work!
