Most teachers (and some students) are familiar with Magic Squares: square grids of numbers where each row, column and diagonal add up to the same value. In this activity, students will investigate the properties of Magic Squares and discover some of the relationships between various values. They will then use those properties and relationships to create new Magic Squares.
