This set of four puzzles offers a challenge to students learning about angles in a triangle. The puzzles include algebra applications. Students must set up and solve linear equations to find some of the missing angle measures. The puzzles will really get your students thinking about how to get from one part of a diagram to another. Each puzzle uses sets of different skills with triangles and angles. You can use all four at once or set them up as learning stations. Students can progress from the easiest (Puzzle D) to the most difficult (Puzzle C) or you can use the different puzzles to differentiate in your classroom.
