Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides - Tarsia Puzzle
This activity will help your students master solving equations with variables on both sides in a fun, hands on way! Prior to class, print a copy of the puzzle for each pair (or group) of students, and cut the puzzle apart. Students will work each problem and find the answer on a different puzzle piece. If all equations are solved correctly, the puzzle will form the original shape that you cut out.
I have used this for a station activity, review game, work for my early finishers, and more. Check out my other items that work perfectly in combination with this activity!
