Do your students have trouble remembering how to find the side lengths of a square when given the area? Or do they need a little more practice with square roots?
Try this fun and novel way to give students some practice : a maze!!
Students begin at the box under the large "start here" arrow. They solve the square root illustrated and follow their choice to the next box, continuing through the maze until the “END” box.
Each box within the maze contains an illustration of a square and its area. I thought teachers may have a preference for two different titles, so I decided to duplicate the activity and label the worksheets with both:
-"Missing Sides of a Square Maze"
-"Illustrated Square Roots Maze"
So, this item includes duplicate versions of the colored and black/white maze worksheet, along with the key. Grading is quick and painless!
