There are 4 different types of Completing the Square Tarsia Puzzle. This includes each of the 4 puzzles in table, piece, solution, and Tarsia Program form. The 4 puzzles are Triangles, Circle, Square, and Follow Me cards (kind of like dominoes).
I put my students in either pairs or groups of 3-4 and give them the entire set of pieces already cut out. Their job is to solve the following quadratics by completing the square. I have them show their work on a separate sheet of paper which I then collect at the end of class. Once they solve the problem, they find the solution on a different piece and match them put, making sure the sides line up. All of the pieces lead to the next question, which eventually forms some shape.
