## Factor Maze Puzzle

Instructions: Start at the top left hand corner, and solve the maze by moving down to the bottom right. If the number you are on is divisible by 2, you can go left. If the number is divisible by 5, you can go right. If the number is divisible by 3, you can go up. And if the number is divisible by 7, you can go down. Only go from one number to the next (never skipping over numbers).

## Finding Solutions Maze Puzzle

Instructions: Start at the top left hand corner, and solve the maze by factoring every polynomial you come across. Write the factorization under the polynomial for easy reference. You can only move one square up, down, left, or right when it SHARES a factor with the current square. You have solved the maze when you exit at the bottom right.
