Solving one-step algebraic equations is so engaging when it's paired with Bingo!

This algebraic equations resource includes:

11 different Bingo cards, with one-step algebraic equations

  • Cards have addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division equations
  • Cards can be copied to create a complete class set

Bingo Numbers/Answer numbers:

  • These are set up in a chart
  • The chart can be laminated and then the numbers cut apart, to be pulled and called when playing the game

Using the Bingo Game

1) Because there are only 11 cards, 2-3 students will each have the same card, if you’re playing with more than 11 students.

  • One benefit to students having the same cards is that if there is one winner, then there should actually be two or three winners.
  • If there is only 1 winner, then you know that the others student(s) may have made mistakes in solving or may have missed the number when it was called.

2) I recommend having students solve all the equations before you start to play so they aren’t trying to solve when the Bingo numbers are called.

3) The cards can be laminated for reuse, and students can then solve on separate paper.

  • OR, if you don't laminate the cards, students can solve the equations on the Bingo cards and circle their answers so they can clearly see the numbers that will be called.

What teachers are saying about this resource:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"I gave my kids 20 minutes to solve the equations on their bingo card to get their solutions, and then we started playing. Had to go over some Bingo rules with them because many hadn't played before. Students had a blast trying to be the ones to win."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"This was a great resource. I had students solve the questions on their bingo card before we played whole class bingo. Students were motivated to complete their math so they could play bingo."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"Students had a lot of fun with this one! They really enjoyed playing and learning at the same time."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"This my favorite Bingo that we played this year. We used this as a review at the end of the unit. Students worked with partners for about 40 minutes solving before we played. This gave me time to help those who needed re-teaching. It is great for engagement, those who don't answer the questions don't have the numbers they need for Bingo."
