If you downloaded this product, then you probably already know of the usefulness and versatility of task cards. They work great for centers, partner activities, and general review. Kids love them because they can move around and work at their own pace, too.

I designed this set of task cards as a companion set to my. Express Yourself Task Cards

This set uses the same word problems, but gives enough information that they can now be solved. To make the problems appropriately challenging, there are 4 equations using the same variable but using a different operation. For example:

-2p = 12
-p + 2 =18
-p - 2 = 4
-p ÷ 2 = 12

Students should write the equation on the answer document and then solve the equation.
