An engaging puzzle, students find the value of "A", transfer that value to the next problem to find "B", and so on until "Z". They then use the code they have created to fill in a silly pun at the bottom. Similar to my other Chain Letters puzzle, but this one is a bit more challenging. Puzzle is designed so that a student with mid-Algebra I level skills can work independently. (multi step equations, basic exponents and square roots) Can be made a bit more challenging by whiting out the given numbers along the way. Would be ideal for sub plans or for when students need independent work. Students could also make a fun game by having a "race" through the chain with a partner.
Hope you enjoy.
