Directions: When is the value of the temperature in Fahrenheit the same as the value of the temperature in Celsius? Source: Robert Kaplinsky

Adding Decimals to Make Them As Close to One as Possible

Directions: Using the digits 1 to 9 at most one time each, fill in the boxes to make three decimals whose sum is as close to 1 as possible. Source: Robert Kaplinsky

Maximizing Rectangular Prism Surface Area

Directions: Using the digits 1 through 9 at most one time each, fill in the boxes to list the dimensions of a rectangular prism with the greatest possible surface area. Source: Robert Kaplinsky

Undefined Quotient with Fraction Division

Directions: Using the digits 0 to 9 at most one time each, fill in the boxes to create at least two different examples where the quotient is undefined. Source: Daniel Luevanos

Product of Distributive Property

Directions: Decide if 30x – 12 could be a result of using the distributive property. If it is, find the possible combinations of factors whose product would be 30x – 12 (using integer coefficients and constants). Source: adapted from Nathan Charlton

Inequality with No Solution

Directions: Create an inequality that has no solution. Source: Kara Colley
