This puzzle is a blend of various lessons that can be done individually as homework or extra credit, or in pairs (if the students are younger.) The intent is to blend some math with learning a little something about the Big 12 Conference. The math which will be learned is focused around learning a little about exponents and a lot about working with the order of operations. (Included IS an explanation and example of the order that we simplify when working with the Order of Operations) The blend is in learning a little about the history of the Big 12 Conference . . . while having a little fun doing so. The answer to the entire puzzle is a quote that applies well beyond the basketball players (or reporters (?) to whom ) it was addressed.
