Review doubling, times tables, multiplying by 10,100, 1000, and multiples of 10, 100, 1000 - including multiplying decimals, all with these no prep printable Math Center activities. An engaging alternative to standard worksheets, these 8 Hidden Word / Spot the Mistakes puzzles make great bell ringers / starters, early finishers challenges, and homework tasks. They can be completed by individual students, pairs, or small groups, and they may not realize they are learning, which is always fun to see! The range of puzzles in this resource is ideal for differentiation and review for individuals, groups, and classes across a range of grades. Please see the Preview File to check if they are suitable for your students.
These puzzles are similar to codebreaker puzzles, with a math-related word to be revealed after completing the multiplication calculations. Each puzzle contains a grid. Within each box is a multiplication calculation and a letter. Students circle any boxes containing errors, then put together the letters from these boxes to reveal a math word. There is a further challenge question / task at the bottom of the page linked to the hidden word.
Students often forget or avoid checking their own work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking the calculations in these puzzles. Spotting common errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves.
