Get your students ready for Algebra and Factoring Trinomials!! These puzzles are a way to get your students practicing their multiplication facts and addition facts in a problem solving way. The underlying idea behind these 8 puzzles is factoring trinomials but the students don't need to know that part. Just ask them the riddle and let them go. I have included a quick way to grade by having the students shade in certain sums or products after they get finished which will create a certain pattern OR let them create their own design based on a certain pattern -- like all even products or sums or ....etc. Enjoy!
