I use relays to review a lot of different subjects in my Algebra 1 classes. This one reviews solving equations with absolute values. (I have a separate Scavenger Hunt for solving inequalities with absolute values.) This would review part of section 3.6 of the Prentice Hall CA Algebra 1 textbook. (although I teach it in Chapter 2 with the other equations.)
Students have fun with Scavenger Hunts. They try hard to find the correct answer so their team can finish first!
It includes instructions of how to use the Scavenger Hunt, a worksheet that students can use to record their answers, and a homework worksheet that reviews the same topic.
