PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Solving Two-Step Equations Triangle Puzzle
................................................................................................................................

NOTE: This resource was updated on 10.28.15. I added a second version without the equations and answers along the border. This second version decreases the difficulty of the activity by eliminating the extra equations/answers that do not have a match.

Equations Triangle Puzzle
• 21 pieces, 25 match-ups
................................................................................................................................

Some Tips:
• The text is read along the outside of the triangle. If you rotate your triangle, you will easily be able to read all of the text right side up.
• For every spot that the triangles match up, the equation and solution must match up.
• When two triangles are touching (share a side), they must be a match.
• There will be equations and solutions that are not used. They will end up along the outer rim of the puzzle with no match.

What should you do about early finishers?
• Give students some blank triangles. Once they have finished the puzzle, they can continue the puzzle with expressions and solutions of their own.
• See who can add on the most triangles before time expires.
• *BONUS: You can now use these cards in the future.*
................................................................................................................................

How to solve the puzzle:

• Match up expressions with their correct answer.
• When matches are found, place the puzzle pieces and work on the next part.
