Solving consecutive integer problems can be a challenge. This activity provides extra practice in setting up (and solving) problems of this type. It can also add some Irish flavor to the third week in March or whenever you need some good ‘luck.’
Math FIBs (which stands for Fill In the BlankS) make a fun activity to reinforce or practice a skill. In this activity, students will practice setting up and solving consecutive integer-type problems involving quadratics.
Each correct answer is aligned with a word or phrase to complete a Fill In the Blank worksheet about St Patrick and the March 17 holiday.
This activity provides a more engaging approach to multiple choice. It will also increase interest about the holiday. Add some green jelly beans and you have a party!
I hope your students enjoy this activity.
