Students will enjoy solving tangram puzzles as they solve equations. By placing the answer of an equation underneath the given problem, various objects will be formed using the tangram pieces.
Examine each puzzle before distributing to students as each set emphasizes certain types of equations. For example, one tangram puzzle may provide practice solving one-step equations using multiplication. Another set may represent solving two-step equations. This allows for differentiation among different classes or within the same class.
The solutions for all equations in this workbook are positive whole numbers.
The activities in this workbook help support Common Core Math standards 6.EE.5 and 6.EE.7
