This is a "Go Fish" Game focuses on solving systems of linear equations (with one solution, no solution, and infinite solutions). It includes 36 cards. This activity is designed in my classroom stations for groups of four. However, students could play in pairs or in larger groups. It works perfectly in stations as it is easily differentiated. As my students are rotating from one station to the next, I can grab the stack of cards and remove some pairs to modify the game for a lower level group.
For best results, print on card stock and laminate before cutting apart. Student directions are included. I recommend laminating them to keep at the station.

Look out for this activity and many others in my eight grade bundles at a deep discount!!! Coming Soon!
Analyze and solve pairs of simultaneous linear equations.
Understand that solutions to a system of two linear equations in two variables correspond to points of intersection of their graphs, because points of intersection satisfy both equations simultaneously.
Solve systems of two linear equations in two variables algebraically, and estimate solutions by graphing the equations. Solve simple cases by inspection. For example, 3x + 2y = 5 and 3x + 2y = 6 have no solution because 3x + 2y cannot simultaneously be 5 and 6.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems leading to two linear equations in two variables. For example, given coordinates for two pairs of points, determine whether the line through the first pair of points intersects the line through the second pair.
