In the last few days before Spring Break, a large portion of my students were gone for various reasons. I decided it was not an ideal time to start a brand new unit in trigonometry. So, I went looking for a new logic puzzle to introduce my trig students to. Many of these students have been in my math classes since they were 8th graders, so they've seen almost all of the puzzles I have up my sleeve.
I found these interesting looking slant puzzles from brainbashers.com. I created a one-page introduction with the rules for these puzzles to give to my students.
Then, I used my snipping tool to grab several puzzles for my students to try their hands at.

Some of my students got really into these puzzles. Others, not so much.

Interested in the file I created with the rules and sample puzzles? I have uploaded it here.
