I use Partner Problems a lot in my classes to review for a variety of topics. The students like them because they can work with a Partner, and because I give a little bit of extra credit to the first three pairs that solve all their problems correctly. This reviews solving by graphing, solving using substitution, solving using elimination, and one mixture problem.
Students are "paired up" – working with the student next to them. On this review, each of the problems require the same type of work. For instance, #1 (on worksheet A), and #A (on worksheet B) both have students solve the system by graphing with both equations in already in slope-intercept form – BUT, they have different numbers to work with. The “Partners” can help each other with the work, but can’t copy each other because the problems are actually different.
An answer key and instructions are included.
