Tiling Problem Activity (Mathematics Assessment Project)

I begin the class with this activity to emphasize the kind of work that I expect in class - group work, problem solving, persistence, etc. For more information on how to approach this activity see the teacher handout below or the support information from the Mathematics Assessment Project, http://map.mathshell.org/tasks.php?unit=HE11&collection=9.

I created this Desmos Activity as a way to extend the initial activity in class:
