In this packet you will find 10 Ken Ken puzzles. These puzzles are similar to Sudoku puzzles, but students also practice working with basic mathematical operations at the same time.
Each of these puzzles is a 4 x 4 puzzle. Students place the numbers 1– 4 so that no number is repeated in either a row or column. The twist is that the numbers must also satisfy an operation that is the corner of each “cage.” For example, numbers must multiply to 6 or add to 5 or divide to get 2, etc. [For division and subtraction, the numbers within the cages can be used in either order. In Ken Ken puzzles there are no negative or fraction answers.]
I have provided these puzzles two to a page, and two choices for a cover that could be used if you choose to make a packet of these puzzles for each student.
