Product Description
This product is a zip file containing 2 pdf documents. One is the puzzle itself; the other is the solution.

While assembling this puzzle, students will practice factoring quadratic equations (with a=1 and a not= 1), difference of squares, factor by grouping (when there are 4 terms), and factoring out a gcf. Alternatively, students could put the puzzle together by multiplying monomials and binomials to obtain the quadratic equations.

How to use this activity:
Group students into groups of 2-3 students. Give each group a copy of the puzzle pieces (3 pages). They will need to cut out the triangular pieces. For each quadratic equation, the students should factor and find the result on another piece. They will tape the edges of those pieces together. The puzzle forms a diamond shape when complete. The edges of the diamond are blank. A key is provided so you can see what the finished product will look like!

My students love doing these types of puzzles because they know immediately if their answer is wrong. Working in groups allows students to help each other, find each other's mistakes, and gain extra practice on the topic we are learning.
