Product Description
This puzzle consists of 12 pieces that all contain factoring problems. Some of the problems require students to factor out the Greatest Common Factor and other problems are difference of squares. None of the problems are combinations (meaning that students have to do a GCF, then factor difference of squares). You will need to make a copy of the “student copy” puzzle for each student or each group. I like for my students to work on this as a partner activity. The puzzle must be cut out before they start. The “student copy” puzzle is scrambled so students can do the cutting for you! I put my puzzle pieces in sandwich baggies or envelopes to help keep them together.
When students finish, their puzzle should make a rectangle and match the answer key. I require students to write down each problem and their work on a separate sheet of paper to turn in. The letters on the puzzle have no meaning, it is just a way for the teacher to do a quick check for correctness. The expressions around the edges of the puzzle key are "dud" answers.
