Place each puzzle piece so that each equation is connected to the matching value of x. Pairs of matching equations and x values should be both vertical and horizontal.
It is a self checking puzzle, since it can only be solved completely with correct combinations.
Two levels of complexity
Level 1: Solving equations with one operation.
Level 2: Solving equations with two operations
Puzzles with frames are included so that students can solve the puzzles quickly for 10-15 minute station work.
Puzzles without frames give students a greater challenge and are more appropriate for group or 15-20 minute stations
