So many great new things that I have discovered been made aware of since I have entered the mathblogosphere and this is my new favorite one – Tarsia Puzzles.  Yay – I had never heard of such a thing either, although after researching them I had seen a couple of them before and had actually printed one off of the internet a couple years ago for my kids to do, but I never knew how easy they were to make.      Here is a pic from pinterest until my kids actually do a puzzle tomorrow.  What I like is that I am able to differentiate the problems that I give the students based on the puzzle I give.  I’m going to make at least 3 and have each on its own color.

The link where you can download this great software FOR FREE can be found here.   And you can find some pre-made tarsia puzzles at Mr. Barton’s page.  Only bad thing is there isn’t a MAC version yet.  : (  So looks like all of this work will be done at home.

I will update with how the activities go after we actually do them tomorrow.  I’m so excited.
