# Expressions & Equations

## Perfect Squares

Directions: Use the digits 1- 9, at most one time each, to fill in the boxes to make each expression evaluate to a perfect square number. Extension/Challenge: What is the largest/smallest square number you can make? How many different perfect square numbers could be made? Source: Erick Lee

## Cubed Roots

Directions: Use the digits 1 to 9, at most one time each, to fill in the boxes to make a true statement. Source: Ryun Deckert, Brock Montgomery

## Differences in Scientific Notation

Directions: Make the largest (or smallest) absolute difference by filling in the boxes using the whole numbers 1 through 9 no more than one time each. Source: Marie Isaac

## Laws of Exponents

Directions: Use the integers 1 through 20 at most one time each, and fill in the blanks to create equivalent expressions. Source: Shaun Errichiello

## Create a System of Two Equations

Directions: Use non-zero whole numbers 1 to 30, at most once time each, to create a system of two linear equations where (3, 2) is the solution to the system. Source: Daniel Luevanos

## Negative Exponents – Closest to Zero

Directions: Use the digits 0 to 9, at most one time each, to fill in the boxes to to make a result that is as close to zero as possible. Source: Daniel Luevanos

## Negative Exponents

Directions: Use the digits 0 to 9, at most one time each, to fill in the boxes to make a true statement. Source: Daniel Luevanos

## Max Intercept

Directions: Using the whole numbers 1 through 9, no more than one time each, write the equation of a line that passes through the point with the largest possible y-intercept. How many solutions can you find?   Source: Andy Schwen
