Description

"Swing your card, round and round..." :)

Students will be so engaged in fun practice over subtracting integers, they won't even realize they are working hard and improving their fluency!

This fun and challenging integer edge-matching Tarsia puzzle is a great activity for:

  • extension/enrichment activity
  • assessment
  • easy sub-day plans
  • short class period
  • reward/fun day
  • partner/small group work
  • competition challenge.

Just copy a sheet for each individual/pair/group onto card stock or colored paper. Laminate for long term use. Cut, place in a baggie or envelope, and distribute. Teams will match the edges of their cards until all edges match with an equivalent expression. The final solution will be a 5 x 4 grid that matches the original document, so be sure to print yourself one as a key.

Use the letters as a spot check guide as you walk the room or have students copy the letter sequence onto the provided answer sheet to turn in. (Letters are turned various directions so students cannot easily figure out which way cards should face. Additionally challenging, each outer edge has teaser expressions.)

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract rational numbers.
Understand subtraction of rational numbers as adding the additive inverse, 𝘱 – 𝘲 = 𝘱 + (–𝘲). Show that the distance between two rational numbers on the number line is the absolute value of their difference, and apply this principle in real-world contexts.
Understand 𝘱 + 𝘲 as the number located a distance |𝘲| from 𝘱, in the positive or negative direction depending on whether 𝘲 is positive or negative. Show that a number and its opposite have a sum of 0 (are additive inverses). Interpret sums of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.
Describe situations in which opposite quantities combine to make 0. For example, a hydrogen atom has 0 charge because its two constituents are oppositely charged.
Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram.
