This offering is a set of five STEM useful puzzles blending together both English and mathematics. Each of the five puzzles is accompanied with a Prelude which gives a brief review of the English and mathematics needed to complete the puzzles as well as explaining how the puzzle part is to be done. The English topics reviewed are grammar, using the correct homophone, how apostrophes are employed, and spelling. The math topics used are raising two, three, and ten to powers, using negative exponents, simple arithmetic, and a shortcut method for squaring numbers ending in five. No algebra is necessary so all five puzzles could be used from 7th grade to 12th grade . . . by teens and adults. They'll be perfect for those days in which the same topic is going to be taught in both English and math. But since those days are extremely rare they'd BEST be employed on those days before vacation when homework might be given and something constructive will take place,on those testing days when homework will be given and there's not enough time to begin anything new but mere busy work is not desired, on those days when you'll be having a sub and you still want something positive to happen, and most of all, for those blizzard bags when not much can be taught but much can be reviewed and mastered.
