Do your students get excited when you tell them it's time to divide decimals? Of course they don't.
But they will if you use this fun, Safe Cracker worksheet!
Students can become world famous safe crackers! Your students will use the clues and their math skills to help crack the safes, in order to claim the prizes found inside.
Students are given three "clues", which are decimal division problems, including models, word problems using a table, and recognizing how to properly place the decimal point. The answers become the numbers in the safe combinations. When the three clues are solved, the safe is cracked! There are a total of 15 problems, but they are grouped into 5 "combinations", so your students will look at this as a 5-question assignment.
The rewards include: an ancient artifact, secret documents, a rainbow diamond, a first edition comic book, and a World Series ring!
