The iPuzzle project is developing apps for mobile devices for students and other puzzle-players to explore, in an interactive format, the logic-building, mathematical puzzles of the Transition to Algebra curriculum. View our Puzzles page on this website or printable Sample Puzzles PDF for more information about the puzzles.
Below are two versions of a Collaborative SolveMe Mobiles paper-based game. Instructions: print one copy of the PDF for each group of players; cut apart the game boards and pass them out to each person on a team; players determine what they can from their board and share their findings with their team to solve for the single, shared set of shape values together. (Note: additional games can be created in the app by creating a single puzzle with multiple mobiles and using screenshots to place the puzzle pieces into a file for printing.)
Below is a third version for five players that has three rounds of play. Each round can be played independently, and each has an optional challenge at the end. Teacher instructions are included.
