Order of Operations Puzzle
Students must rearrange 9 puzzle pieces so that the problems match the solution on each side. Once finished, the puzzle will be a 3 x 3 grid which is easily checked by teacher using the "mystery word" that it spells (left to right, top to bottom).
This puzzle is intended for fifth grade use, but may be good review or remediation practice for 6th. The problems include 3 and 4 step problems which involve parenthesis, multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction. NO exponents and NO negative numbers.
I have used puzzles like this (my decimal addition puzzle to be specific) in my remediation class of six 5th grade boys who eagerly solved the problems in order to "beat" the other teams.
