I have revised the algebra square puzzle that I posted a few weeks ago. See
the sample below. I will send a link to the Excel file in a separate email.



I used trial and error to develop these puzzles. I know that there is a lot
of mathematics and programming involved creating puzzles of this type. I
would appreciate any assistance anyone can give me.



My puzzles were inspired by the popular KenKenR puzzles. I disclaim any
association with Nextoy, LLC or the KenKen Puzzle Company.





Please feel free to modify my puzzles to suit your classroom needs. You can
share them with your colleagues. In order to print the puzzles, open the
Excel file and then enable macros. Then press CTRL-t. Five different
puzzles will be printed. The solution to each puzzle appears at the bottom
of the page. I slice off the solutions and save them in case students have
difficulty solving the puzzle. Each puzzle is matched to its solution using
a form number.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions for improving the puzzles or
need any assistance using the Excel macro.
