This is a game for solving one-step equations complete with:
-2 player pieces that stand up when you tape them as a triangle
-12 number problem cards
-12 word problem cards
-Spinner with arrow (you must provide fastener)
If you don't want to use the spinner, use a die!
Students should work with a partner (one person is X and the other is Y).
Have them spin the spinner to see who will go first.
Player 1 spins first and goes that many spaces. Player 1 draws a card from the type of problem he/she landed on. Player 1 solves it. Player 2 checks the solution.
If correct, Player 2 goes. If incorrect, Player 1 must move back that many spaces.
First player to reach the end wins!
Make any adjustments to this game as you please :)
