Order of Operations Triangle Matching Puzzle

................................................................................................................................

Are you looking for a unique way to review the order of operations? Puzzles force our students to think, whether they want to or not.

• This puzzle is great for middle school or high school students to use when reviewing the order of operations.

• If you are teaching 5th grade, use this puzzle as a fun review after you have taught order of operations.

This puzzle is the PERFECT size for an interactive math notebook (even when you are using a composition book). The puzzle fits on 1/2 page of copy paper.

................................................................................................................................

The expressions have parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division (also written as a fraction), subtraction, and/or addition.

Would you rather have expressions with only multiplication, division (but not written as a fraction), subtraction and/or addition? Get it here: Order of Operations Triangle Puzzle - No Parentheses or Fractions

Some Tips:
• The text is read along the outside of the triangle. If you rotate your triangle, you will easily be able to read all of the text right side up.
• For every spot that the triangles match up, the expression and answer must match up.
• When two triangles are touching (share a side), they must be a match.
• There will be expressions and solutions that are not used. They will end up along the outer rim of the puzzle with no match. There are four boxes on the worksheet for students to write in the four answers that have no match.

................................................................................................................................

How to solve the puzzle:
• Solve each expression to find the answer.
• Match up expressions with the correct answer.
• When matches are found, place the puzzle pieces and work on the next part.
• Make sure that all shared lines represent the same number.
• Once everything matches up, you are finished! Congrats!
• Glue puzzle pieces on worksheet.

What can you do about early finishers?
Give students some blank triangles. Once they have finished the puzzle, they can continue the puzzle with expressions and answers of their own. See who can add on the most triangles before time expires.

*BONUS: You can now use these cards in the future.*

Specific Ways to Use This Activity:
