Solve It Strips are a FUN, hands-on, puzzle-like, math extension activity that keeps students engaged! These can be used as a math center, an early-finisher activity, with a parent-led math group, or as a mini-assessment. Solve It Strips also make fun home practice, too!
This set of Solve It Strips focuses on single-digit multiplication and division facts 1-12 as well as multiplication by whole numbers. There are 15 puzzle strips included:
Strips 1-3: Mixed practice of basic multiplication facts 1-12
Strips 4-6: Multiplying a two-digit whole number by a single-digit number (i.e. 80 x 5)
Strips 7-10: Mixed practice of basic division facts 1-12
Strips 11-15: Mixed multiplication and division facts
Students are challenged to use their mental math skills in solving the problems on each strip. Students begin with the “Start” strip and solve the problem on that strip. That will lead them to the second strip, and so forth, until students end up with the solution for the “FINISH” strip. After students glue strips down, they color in each solution box for self-checking. Two cover options are included, along with easy directions for storage of Solve It Strips.
