These sixteen vocabulary matching puzzles introduce/review the key math terms needed to succeed in 8th Grade Middle School Math. Each of the 16 puzzle contains 18 cards where students match terms, definitions and examples, putting the learning in their hands. These are great for group work, inspiring discussion and debate to encourage learning. There are other puzzles for Middle School Math are available in My TpT Store, along with Unit Quizzes, Unit Tests and PreTests, and great online interactivities -- Check ‘em Out!
Vocabulary Matching Puzzles are an engaging, easy and quick way for students to learn and review many of the key math terms that are foundational to the Common Core Math Standards in Middle School. Students can work on these puzzles in small groups, pairs, or individually. The puzzles can be used often and throughout the year, as an introduction, assessment, at stations, or review. They can be used as a bell ringer, an exit ticket, or embedded in the day’s lesson.
The puzzles can be copied on card stock, laminated and cut into pieces for repeated use.
I usually make 8 sets of each puzzle on different colored card stock for easy organization and handling. As a time saver, the puzzles could be copied on regular paper for the students to cut out and correctly assemble and tape together.
