I created this game for common core math stations on algebra. Students are challenged to match a scenario with the 2-step inequality that represents it. It can be played individually, in partners, or groups of three or four.
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.
There are 36 cards included. This is enough for three different twelve-card games or two different 18-card games.
I have groups of four rotate through stations. At this station, the groups of four split into two partner pairs. When both partner pairs finish the match, they can trade and do the other half.
For best results, print on card stock and laminate before cutting apart. Student directions are included to use as a partner activity. I recommend laminating them to keep at the station.
This activity is included in the BUNDLE Equations and Inequalities at 15% off, the BIG BUNDLE for Seventh Grade First Semster at 20% off, and the BEST BUNDLE for Seventh Grade Complete Year at 25% off!!!!

Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.
Solve word problems leading to inequalities of the form px + q > r or px + q < r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Graph the solution set of the inequality and interpret it in the context of the problem. For example: As a salesperson, you are paid $50 per week plus $3 per sale. This week you want your pay to be at least $100. Write an inequality for the number of sales you need to make, and describe the solutions.
