In this Magic Square 15 Puzzle, your task is to arrange the numbers 1 through 9 in the grid so that the numbers in each row, column, and main diagonal sum to 15.
I’ve typed up so many different puzzles for my classroom over the years, but somehow I’ve managed to overlook including a basic magic square puzzle for them to complete. I decided to remedy that!

I intentionally do not make answers to the printable math puzzles I share on my blog available online because I strive to provide learning experiences for my students that are non-google-able. I would like other teachers to be able to use these puzzles in their classrooms as well without the solutions being easily found on the Internet.
However, I do recognize that us teachers are busy people and sometimes need to quickly reference an answer key to see if a student has solved a puzzle correctly or to see if they have interpreted the instructions properly.
If you are a teacher who is using these puzzles in your classroom, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with information about what you teach and where you teach. I will be happy to forward an answer key to you.
