If students have the correct final answer then the rest of the worksheet is also correct.

To solve the puzzle students will have to successfully add/subtract polynomials 15 times.

This product is best suited for AP/Pre-AP students. Grade level or below grade level students may get frustrated by the difficulty of the puzzle.

Ways to use this puzzle
-Have students work on it individually and when they think they have finished allow them to partner up with someone. If they both have the same final answer then have them come check it with you. If they have different final answers they must work together to figure out who is correct.
-Use this as an extra credit assignment. Once students show you the correct final answer they get so many points of extra credit. This is a great after test activity.
-Use this as a group assignment. The group only gets one chance to show you the correct answer. If their answer is correct they get a reward but if their answer is incorrect there is a consequence. This will encourage them to work together to repeatedly check their work before showing it to you (the teacher) to see if they have done it correctly.
