Algebra Magic Square
Students are presented with a 3 by 3 grid and a series of cards each containing an algebraic statement. Students are required to place the cards on the grid in such a fashion that each row, each column and each diagonal add to give the magic 'number' of 12a + 15b.
Students are then challenged to make up their own puzzle. The second page contains the solution to the puzzle.
