This product consists 2 levels of puzzles for students to practice evaluating absolute value expressions. The Basic level simply requires students to find the absolute value of various numbers. The Intermediate level requires students to evaluate absolute value expressions involving variables.
Tarsia puzzles are great for group work, and are a good way for students to practice a skill in class and get immediate feedback. Students must solve the problems and match the problem to the correct answer to put the puzzle together. My students enjoy doing them because they know right away whether their answer is right or wrong by how the puzzle fits together.
