**We have begun to offer our 4 x4 grid puzzles in a computer format, which take out the prep work involved. They can be done as a computer lab activity or to supplement the paper versions by displaying it on your smartboard or projector. The computer version of this puzzle can be found here: Computer Math Puzzles- Two Step Equations.**
A great activity for students learning to solve two step equations, or as a refresher for upper level math classes. A variety of two step equations are included. This puzzle contains problems in the form of a 4 x 4 grid where students match up the answer next to the problem. Roman numerals are included in the middle of the pieces so that a teacher can quickly check if the student is correct.
There are two puzzles included in the PDF file. On the first puzzle, there are no answers or equations on the outside of the grid. This makes putting together the puzzle easier for students. The second version does include equations and answers on the outside, which allows students to practice their inductive reasoning and critical thinking skills, while making the puzzle more difficult. This allows for differentiation amongst your ability groups.
Although it isn't necessary for use, it is recommended you print the puzzle on cardstock and have it laminated prior to cutting it out so it can last for years!
