Tarsia is a piece of freely available software which allows teachers to create a wide range of jigsaws, domino and follow-me activities very easily. The advantages of this software mean:
you can easily create a wide range of activities, including jigsaws of various shapes and sizes, dominoes, matching rectangular cards and follow- me cards.
the teacher does not need to spend time cutting up the jigsaw as the software automatically jumbles up the pieces of the puzzle in the "output" section, thus allowing the teacher simply to print out a copy and hand it to students to cut out and assemble.
Craig Barton has written plenty of helpful advice for teachers who want to download Tarsia software - a very easy process - and handy tips on how to get to grips with it. He has also created some excellent resources to showcase the benefit for both teachers and pupils.
