Quilt Square Codes -- Math Spies Episode 7
Have you visited Math Spies lately? Math Spies is my math problem-solving website. I post a problem a week each Wednesday.
Episodes 7 has seven problems with an extra example problem to show students how to solve the others. I call it Quilt Square Code Problems, because, students determine the fraction of each color of a square like the one above. They use those fractions to solve a code word.
Click here for the example problem on Math Spies. To solve the other seven problems in the series, click here.
I made a set of task cards with these codes and 24 more available here at Teacher's Notebook and available here at Teachers Pay Teachers.
