PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

SUBTRACTING INTEGERS TRIANGLE PUZZLE

• 14 pieces, 16 match-ups

...........................................................................................................................

Are you looking for a fun way to review subtracting integers? Students love this twist on a boring worksheet. They are given the chance to cut, arrange, and solve a puzzle. The puzzle can be completed individually or in groups. It is guaranteed to be a hit with your class.

...........................................................................................................................

This product is new and improved. On 3/5/2015, I added more options to the product.

• Are you worried about the students not being organized enough? There are several worksheet options.

• Do you want to get rid of the expressions and differences on the border to make the puzzle easier? No worries; it is an option!

...........................................................................................................................

ARE YOU IN A HURRY?


Print pages 7, 8, and 12.

Suggested: Make copies of page 7 (one-sided). Page 7 is the puzzle for students to cut out and solve. Make enough copies for each student or group.

Optional: Page 8 is the blank worksheet where the students can glue the completed puzzle. If you are taking a grade for the assignment, this is a good way to do it.

Suggested: Page 12 is the answer key. Print so you can check the puzzles easily.

Note: This is part of my product, Integer Operations Triangle Puzzles.

Some Tips:
• The text is read along the outside of the triangle. If you rotate your triangle, you will easily be able to read all of the text right side up.

• For every spot that the triangles match up, the expression and answer must match up.

• When two triangles are touching (share a side), they must be a match.

• There will be expressions and answers that are not used. They will end up along the outer rim of the puzzle with no match.

What should you do about early finishers?

• Give students some blank triangles. Once they have finished the puzzle, they can continue the puzzle with expressions and sums of their own.

• See who can add on the most triangles before time expires.

• *BONUS: You can now use these cards in the future.*

...........................................................................................................................

How to solve the puzzle:

• Solve each expression to find the answer.

• Match up expressions with their correct answer.

• When matches are found, place the puzzle pieces and work on the next part.

• Make sure that all shared lines represent the same number.

• Once everything matches up, you are finished! Congrats!
