This is a solving one step equations with integers Tarsia style puzzles. Included here is a set of 3 puzzles, a 6 piece, 9 piece, and 12 piece Tarsia style puzzle. For each puzzle students cut out the triangle and match the equation with the solution. Once the puzzle is completed it is self-checking because all equations will match an answer to form the completed puzzle, one wrong answer and the remaining pieces will not fit.
This is a great basic skills/review to help students prepare for more indepth word problems and real-life situations. The puzzles can be laminated and used repeatedly, or copied for each student and taped/glued to the puzzle frame so they kow the final shap of the puzzle.
3 puzzles, answer keys, puzzle frames for placing pieces into, and a modified version with a puzzle piece started are included.
