Now with 3 options to fit the needs of your students.
• Option 1: This 18 question puzzle provides students with practice using the formula for simple interest ( I = prt). The first 9 questions have students solve for interest, then the second half have students solve for either principal, rate, or time. This is the most challenging of all 3 options.
• Option 2: This option is very similar to Option 1. Students will have to solve for interest, principal, rate, or time. I made it slightly easier than option 1 by writing all time in terms of years (ie: 2.5 years instead of 30 months).
• Option 3: This 9- question puzzle is a reduced version of the first two options- most importantly there are only half as many questions. Also, ALL questions ask students to solve for interest (given principal, rate, & time). The rates are already written in decimal form and the time will always be given in years. This is a great option for struggling students/ students well below grade level.
This is a fun & interactive way for students to practice simple interest. My students would much rather complete a puzzle than a worksheet.
You may choose to enlarge the triangles for group work, reduce their size to fit on an interactive notebook page, or keep them the size they are.
