Math Posts: 30 Location: Lafayette | Here is a factor puzzle I created to review factoring with my Advanced Geometry students. Could work great with Algebra I Chapter 5 or as a review in any other class. Just cut the puzzle apart and have the students factor it back together! P.S. This is my first time posting so if I didn't do something right, let me know! Attachments ---------------- Factor Puzzle.pdf (499KB - 384 downloads) | ||

Math Posts: 30 Location: Lafayette | Ah, the old fashioned way...cutting and pasting. I have yet to figure out a way to invert text. However I used Excel for the sideways problems/answers and so in the end it didn't take to much addition effort to attach the upside down parts. If anyone figures out a way to get get or equations upside down (that doesn't involve Bryson's fancy computer language) let me know! | ||
