Practice Structures: Tarsia Revisited

In the past, I wrote about using using Tarsia to practice math concepts.  You have probably seen Tarsia style puzzles on Pinterest and TpT, but this free software lets you make you own.  This puzzles make a shape like a triangle or hexagon.  Then you match up the corresponding questions and answers to put the puzzle together.  The software allows you to make other puzzles as well, like dominoes and I have/Who has.

Here is a link to the original post with more details of how it works.

Here is the link to the free software download.  However, the last time I checked, the site was down, so here is a link to a direct download.

Here are 3 sample puzzles to get you started.

Grade 4: Decimals, Fractions, and Fraction Strips PDF, Tarsia
Grade 6: Fractions, Decimals, Percents PDF, Tarsia
Algebra 2: Fractional Exponents PDF, Tarsia

These are great fun, but can be time consuming to make, so share out what you do make :)
