This classic Domino game is a great way to review and reinforce solving equations. Students will solve a variety of equations including those with the distributive property, combining like terms,one solution, no solution, and infinite solutions. It is designed as a classroom station for groups of four. However, a student could play individually or partners could play together. It works perfectly in stations as it is easily differentiated. As my students are rotating from one station to the next, I can switch out the big deck for a smaller one to modify the game for a lower level group. This activity contains 18 dominoes. I laminate the included directions to keep at the station. There is also a sheet for students to show their work.
An answer key is unnecessary as the problems in the file go in order. That is, each problem is answered on the following domino and the last problem is answered on the first. You can print a copy to use as a key.
My students love the domino station.

Solve linear equations in one variable.
Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent equation of the form x = a, a = a, or a = b results (where a and b are different numbers).
Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.
