Playing a game of Tic Tac Toe is a great way to review topics! Students work together in pairs to complete 16 questions.
This one reviews Solving Equations. The problems vary in degree of difficulty, ranging from two step problems to multiple step problems -- including combining like terms and having variables on both sides of the equation.
Students like this type of review because they can get help from their partner, but are still in a competition to win the game.
