By popular demand, here is a partner review activity for solving inequalities!!! Partners work side by side with different, but similar worksheets. Partner A has all of Partner B's answers on the back of his or her worksheet. Partner B has all of Partner A's answers on the back of his or her worksheet. Partners work one problem at a time on their own worksheet, then check each other's answers. Students are warned...help, but don't cheat.
This activity allows students to help one another with confidence. Low students can even help high students because they have the worked out answers to their neighbor's paper. Two low students can study and try to understand the answer together.
Try this once and you will be hooked. Give a good speech about expected behaviors and you will hear more peer tutoring going on in your room than ever before. This frees you up to facilitate rather than having to tutor everyone at once.
I have scanned in all the worked out answers so you can just print. ***Remember....print partner A's answers on the back of B's work, and print partner B's answers on the back of A's work.***
The problem types included on this review are:
*. One step inequalities
*. Two step inequalities (both forwards and backwards)
*. Solving inequalities with combining like terms and distributive prop.
*. Solving inequalities with variables on both sides
*. Solving absolute value inequalities (those with just x inside the bars and those with more than x inside the bars.
***The only kind not on the page, are those with solving compound inequalities where students must solve the middle, left, and right. I chose to leave those off this particular review because my students don't struggle with those. For some reason, they tend to struggle with the shorter problems.
***Note: If you don't need the absolute value inequalities, you can just cover up the bottom four before you print. The first 12 will still make a great partner activity.***
This review would work well for any level of beginning Algebra, from middle school to college. I use it as an end of chapter practice or review, but it would work well at the end of the semester before midterms, and also before final exams. This is also a GREAT activity to leave when you must have a substitute!
