Students work in partners to multiply integers in this collaborative "Around the Clock" partner scavenger hunt activity. Each partner gets a clock with 12 unique integer expressions to simplify. Each partner's expressions are different but they will multiply to the same integer, encouraging collaboration and teamwork. If one student gets stuck, the other can help. If student answers differ, they work together to figure out the correct answer before moving on to the next problem.
Students paste their START slip at 12 o'clock, multiply the integers on that slip and then find the answer on the top of another slip. They then paste this next slip at 1 o'clock and multiply the integers on this slip. Each answer students find will lead to the next problem.
Students multiply integers, pasting their slips along the way, until they get back to 12 o'clock. If all problems have been simplified correctly, the answer from the problem at 11 o'clock will be at the top of their START slip.
The activity is self-checking, providing students with instant feedback. The final product is a colorful example of their understanding of integer rules when multiplying. Includes optional student answer sheets and answer key.
