Order of operations problems with 6-7 operations. There are 6 different puzzles, all with the same problems. Included are a hexagon, triangle, square, domino, circle, and a more challenging parallelogram. If a piece has a blank side, it is treated like an edge or a corner piece of a puzzle. With the parallelogram puzzle, there are no blank sides meaning there are about 12 problems that do not have answers in the puzzle making it the most challenging to put together.
Cut out the pieces enough for 1 per group of either 2-4 (depending on the puzzle), put them in a baggy, number the backs so that any fallen pieces can be put back in the right group, then give the students about 20-30 minutes to complete. The first group done I give a prize like candy or a homework pass.
I have also included an envelope to use if you want students to keep their own set of the puzzle in their Interactive Notebook. Simply cut on the solid lines and fold the dotted lines under. It should create a nice envelope that can be glued into their notebook or just used to hold the pieces.
