Product Description
WRITING LINEAR EQUATIONS given two points - a tarsia or jigsaw puzzle

Students need to be able to write equations given two points. This is a great activity to help them practice that skill.
This resource is useful in stations, assigned as an individual challenge, or with an intervention group/individual.
Puzzle pieces include icons that add interest and make checking easier.
-----------------------------------
This resource includes:
A Tarsia-style puzzle on WRITING EQUATIONS where students use two points to write linear equations.
A mat template; to place puzzle pieces.
Two points are given in a table format for use when it is not convenient to cut/glue puzzle pieces; i.e. a student was absent or missed class. You can also ask students to show the steps on the table that they used to simplify each expression.
Solution for the equations in the table.
Solutions for the puzzle (graphic and image).
-----------------------------------
IDEAS for USE

PRINT a page of puzzle pieces and the mat (consider printing the mat on color paper for contrast) / one per student or group.
PROVIDE scissors and glue stick (or tape).
OR
Use the included table and challenge students to find the values, showing the steps that accomplish this task.
OR
Use the solution shown in the table and cut apart the cells to create a card match using the strips created.
---------------------------------
There are twelve pairs of points and matching equations that assemble into a star shape. I like to grade this on a 25 point scale; 2 points for finding each of the 12 equations and the equation (I may give one point if they show their work, but make a mistake) for 24 points and one point if they persevere to solve the entire puzzle and assemble it correctly.

This resource is great as an anchor activity or differentiation activity to engage and challenge a variety of learners.
