Students multiply 12 mixed numbers in this trail/scavenger hunt activity. Several of the answers must be simplified and/or converted back to mixed numbers. Self-checking and more fun than a traditional worksheet! Can be used as an in class activity, homework or sub plan!
Multiply the fractions and then simplify and/or write the product as a mixed number. Students solve the 1st problem and find the answer in the gray heading of one of the other problems. Write a “2” in the box in the bottom left corner and then complete that problem. Repeat the process, writing a “3” in the third problem, following the trail until all of the problems are complete and you have returned to the start. The 12th problem completed should take the students back to the problem they started with. If it does not or they go back before completing all of the other problems, then they made a mistake somewhere.
