This Mix-Up is a great way for students to solve equations with multiple steps. All the equations in this mix-up require distribution & combining like terms on both sides of the equation.
This activity can be done individually or in pairs. Also, this is a self-checking, cut-n-paste activity.
Students will start by cutting the strips apart, gluing the start strip, and solving the first equation. Their answer will guide them to the next strip, which they will glue and find another equation to solve. When they reach the top, they are done!
Your purchase includes 3 different Mix-Up sets, each with 9 different problems, a student answer sheet to glue their strips, and all 3 answer keys!
Students love to get out the scissors and glue in math class!
