With the free **Formulator Tarsia software from Hermitech Laboratory**, (you can download the software and see more information by following the link) it is possible to create

puzzles of various types. These work well with students of any age. Most of the published resources seem to be for students age 11 to 18 but as it is possible to create puzzles, teachers of younger students could create puzzles suitable for their classes.

Note that as well as downloading the application it is possible to download selections of puzzles from Craig Barton and from Bryan Dye. Craig also has a section of his website devoted to **Tarsia** – note all the ideas here for using Tarsia in the classroom.

TES Resources host an **extensive collection of Tarsia Puzzles**. Note that the search can be **narrowed to Mathematics **and further to your chosen age range, eg** Post 16**

It’s a great program Simon, glad you have found it useful. It’s one of those resources I use with all classes, it’s good for the older students (17-18) as well as the younger ones. There are some good puzzles for trig identities for example.
