Math Centers - I Have Math Sequencing Puzzles

Whether you call them stations or math centers, math stations are a great way to have students review an old concept, practice a new concept, or practice a skill that is a struggle. Teachers are able to differentiate instruction during stations. Students have an opportunity to practice math skills hopefully in an engaging way.

As a Resource Teacher, I had small classes and couldn't do traditional games such as I Have...Who Has. So I made a version of I Have...Who Has for individuals. You can print the strips and laminate for a math center or copy the pages for small groups to complete. 

How does an I Have Math Sequence Puzzle work?

☑ Students receive a set of 10 strips with math problems and a recording sheet. 
☑ Have students cut out the strips, work the first problem on the start strip, and find the answer. 
☑ Then it is a chain of problems and finding answers. 
 TIP: I like to have them put them in order first before gluing!

DIY VERSION: 

You can also make your own versions with popsicle sticks. 

Materials:

☑ All you need is 10 sticks per I Have game
☑ a marker 

How to Create:

☑ Line up your 10 sticks and write start (left-hand side) on the first one along with a problem (towards the middle). 
☑ On the next stick write the answer (left-hand side) to the previous problem and a new problem (towards the middle).

☑ Keep going until you reach the last stick. On the last stick, write the answer to the previous problem and then write "end" instead of a new problem.

How to solve the math puzzle:

☑ The students then mix up the sticks and reorder them solving each problem.
