On each card, students first solve their 2 equations. Next, they either add, subtract, multiply or divide the solutions (based on what their card says to do) to see if the result matches the check number in the lower right corner of the card. Chances are if the check number matches, the equations were solved correctly!
This activity is self-checking, giving students that instant feedback they love.
Includes 20 task cards that print 4 per page. Some equations involve fractional coefficients and some solutions are fractions/decimals.
Two versions of the student answer sheet are included for differentiation. One version has spaces for all 20 cards to be answered. The second version has spaces for just the first 10 cards to be answered, if you'd like a shorter activity. Answer key included.
I'm currently making more of these self-checking activities. You can see the list here: Solve 'n Check activities
