Looking for a collaborative, self checking activity?! Check out this Pythagorean Theorem - Finding Hypotenuse and Side Lengths Around the Clock Partner Scavenger Hunt Activity!

Students will work in pairs to solve order of operation problems that include exponents. Each partner will have their own clock with 12 unique problems. Each partner's problems will be different from the others, but the answers and placement on the clock will be identical. If one partner is struggling through a problem, the other can help them through it and vice versa until they agree on the same answer. If the partners are differing on an answer they can look at each others work to help find the error and find the correct answer to continue through the scavenger hunt.

Students will have a starting problem indicated by a (*). That problem will be glued to the 12 o'lock spot. Students will solve the problem and find the answer on another problem at the top of that cut out. They will take that next problem and glue it to the 1 o'clock spot. Continue to process through every hour until they reach 11 o'clock. The 11 o'clock answer should be on the 12 o'clock spot. If students complete all 12 problems correctly, they will move around the clock correctly back to the 12 o'clock spot.

The activity is self-checking, providing students with instant feedback. There are multiple version descriptions included in this activity to help you utilize this activity that fits best for you and your students! These are colorful and fun, a great way to display student work!

The best part of this activity is it is print ready! Purchase, download, copy and hand out to students! All they need to do is cut out the problems and glue them to the correct spots on the clock :) Happy teaching!
