PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Multiplication Practice: Finding Products & Factors- 3 Crack the Codes!

If you’re looking for a fun and engaging way for students (grades 4-6) to get computation practice, this is it! This resource includes 3 different puzzles, using multiplication and its inverse operation, division. They’ll enjoy the challenge and feedback is immediate through solving the puzzle correctly.

Missing Products & Factors and More Fun With Missing Products & Factors, the first two puzzles, are differentiated with two views of the same puzzle. Problems are set in a table format which can be distracting for some students, so on the first student version, I’ve included two mini-alphabet tables to help organize their work. The second view does not include those mini-tables, allowing students to organize their thinking in a way that works for them. These two puzzles use only 2-digit factors (divisors).

The third puzzle, Out of Order Multiplication Practice, adds one more twist- students have to order their answers from least to greatest in order to Crack the Code. In addition, this puzzle incorporates 2-digit by 3-digit factors with up to 5-digit products. The division problems (when looking for the missing factor) have only 2-digit divisors.

All student pages are in black & white.
