Product Description
This product has been completely revamped and is vastly improved! If you've ever looked at this product before but weren't sold, take another look and change your mind!

This new and improved version:

• Has ALL equations/expressions typed using equation editor
• Has symmetrical shapes for the key instead of words (to eliminate "cheating")
• Has bigger puzzle squares
• Has all squares exactly the same size
• IS available in the editable version

Engage your students with these hands-on puzzles! Use for review! Use for remediation! Use for practice! Use as independent work or group work!

This set of 8 puzzles is ideal as a review tool before an assessment. Students work in groups to solve various problems or simplify various expressions. Puzzles only fit together one way. Puzzles are 3x3 and can be copied for your classroom needs and laminated for longevity. My students LOVED this review activity, and I'm sure yours will, too. Depending on your students, completing a review puzzle could take as little as 10-20 minutes or as long as a full class period (or longer). It could also be used as an extension activity or a remediation tool (for students who need extra practice).

Each activity puzzle is aligned to the Common Core Standards (Math). Specifics included in the free preview file.

This is a 12-page .pdf file and requires Adobe Acrobat Reader to view. If you would like the editable version, please contact me at for details.
