BSB is excited to announced that as part of The Big Jig going on in Secondary school, the Mathematics department is making an attempt  at break the world record for the largest ever mathematical puzzle! 

About Tarsia

Tarsia is a software package that allows you to make your own mathematical jigsaws. It is like a normal jigsaw, but instead of lining up the pieces using a picture the edges are lined up using mathematical equations. One edge will have a mathematical expression and it lines up with another edge with an equivalent expression. Tarsia is sometimes used to facilitate learning in Mathematics and can be used for just about any age or level of study.

The BSB Shunyi Tarsia puzzle has been designed with just under 9000 linking equations on about 6000 jig saw pieces. It is hoped that in doing this project we will break a world record for the largest ever mathematical puzzle - the previous record standing at 1000 pieces.

In our school, the puzzle solution will involve about 500 students at all levels of secondary school Mathematics.

Stay tune for more details!
