# Multiplying Mixed Numbers – Math Mazes

Practice multiplying mixed numbers while finding your way through this set of 3 math mazes.

## Multiplying Mixed Numbers

With this math worksheet bundle, students will work their way through 3 different mazes. To find their way through each maze, students will solve each mixed number multiplication problem within a rectangle and follow the path with the correct answer. Students can shade the path with colored pencils, crayons, etc. But watch out! Some dead ends are waiting for your students in some of the mazes.

If you are looking to incorporate a little competitive fun into your classroom, consider assigning this resource to a pair of students. When someone says, “Go!” students can race each other through the maze and check their answers at the end with the provided answer key.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:

For students who need a bit of a challenge, encourage them to create their own math maze. Consider removing the numbers from the editable version so students can use the blank template.

If there are students who need a bit of support, encourage them to reference previous assignments, posters, or anchor charts as a means of reference. You can also choose to provide students with a multiplication chart to help them with basic facts. Additionally, this worksheet can be completed in a 1-on-1 setting or with a small group of students.
