Absolute Value Equations practice upgraded to a move-around-the-room activity that self-checks. Similar to a scavenger hunt, this Encrypted Wall Activity has students solving absolute value equations posted around the room. However, problems can be solved in ANY order. Students record the letter of the problem next to the solutions on their answer sheet. Letters are an encoded completion to the sentence starter, “I’m dreaming of…” A simple Caesar cipher decoding sheet is included. The decoded message takes out the pain of grading. Know at a glance if students have accurately solved these absolute value equations.
Easily Differentiate: While students only solve 9 absolute value equations to complete the encoded message, 27 absolute value equations in varying difficulty are included. This allows you to hand-pick the absolute value equations for your students or create ability tracks to meet the needs of a diverse group.
In a rush? Quick Start option available -- just print and go.
A Worksheet alternative to this absolute value equation activity is included as well.
This offers a light introduction into cryptology while still practicing rigorous Algebra content.
Now new option to include equations with no solution.
♩ Note: Some overlapping equations with Absolute Value Hangman.
❥ Hope this resource proves useful to your classroom for years to come!
