What is a Tarsia Puzzle?

  • A Tarsia puzzle is a type of jigsaw puzzle used in mathematics education to help students understand mathematical concepts. It consists of a set of pieces, each with a shape and pattern, that can be put together to form a larger shape or pattern. Tarsia puzzles often include equations, diagrams, or other mathematical representations. Tarsia puzzles are used to reinforce understanding and promote problem-solving skills in a fun and interactive way.

Have a “Ball” With a Basketball Math Worksheet

It’s basketball season, so you’ve got to drop in some court-based activities to grab the attention of your youngest basketball fans. This tarsia puzzle features 15 individual pieces, each with multiple two-digit by two-digit equations. Students will cut apart the pieces, then solve the puzzle by matching equations and answers to form a basketball.
