This is meant to be a review activity for equation solving. The topics include:
- Clearing Fractions
- Clearing Decimals
- Solving Proportions (where distributing is necessary)
- Equations with No Solution or Infinitely Many Solutions
This is a challenging activity. Not all answers are integral values. Students need to leave their answers as fractions in simplest form.
How it works: Post the problems around your room or in the hallway. I have my students travel in pairs with a mini whiteboard for each student. Each pair begins at a problem sheet. They do the problem and look for their answer on another problem sheet. They continue to travel all around the room until they end up at the problem sheet they started at. The kids enjoy this because they are up and moving!
