** We have just started to roll out computer versions of our 4 x 4 puzzles that take out the prep work of doing these activities. They run in flash and can be used as a computer lab activity or to supplement the paper versions. The computer version can be found here: Computer Math Puzzles – Solving Inequalities**
A great activity for students learning to solve inequalities. This activity is also ideal for a review for students who have already taken Algebra I. Students refine their skills dealing with solving inequalities but also their inductive reasoning skills, as the pieces will only work out in one manner. This puzzle contains solving inequalities problems in the form of a 4 x 4 grid where students match up the answer next to the problem. Roman numerals are included in the middle of the pieces so that a teacher can quickly check if the student is correct.
Your purchase includes a PDF file of two version of the puzzle for differentiation which can be conducted in two different manners. One version contains no problems or solutions around the outside of the puzzle making it easier to solve. The second version contains the same problems as the first but includes some repeated problems around the border making it more difficult to solve and requiring the use of .
The puzzle can be conducted in two ways. First pass out the scrambled version of the desired puzzle to students and have them complete as a 'cut and paste' activity. Another option is to print the desired copies puzzle, have them laminated, and cut out the pieces prior to giving to students so it could be used for years to come!
