In this activity, students will practice solving systems of linear equations. The equations are presented in standard form as well as slope intercept form. Students may choose to solve by any of the three methods: graphing, elimination, or substitution.
For this "square puzzle", students will begin by cutting out the 16 squares. Then they must rearrange the squares so that the system of equations is matched edge-to-edge with its solution point. Students will glue the pieces onto the answer sheet. The final puzzle will still be in the shape of a square. (To save copy paper, you can have students glue their puzzle onto notebook paper, rather than the included blank answer sheet.)
