This is a new station for practicing problem solving.This set focuses on solving linear systems with one solution and includes four different Poly Problem Solvers, each with eight problems. Students solve the problem and match the answer to it. I suggest using hook and loop tabs. This way, students can actually stick the solutions next to the problems. There are two extra answers in each case, so that student must solve the last problem rather than use process of elimination.
My station rotations are in groups of four. I like to use these as a partner station. That is, when the group gets to this station, they work in partner pairs on two different Poly-Problem-Solvers. They can switch if both partner pairs finish with time left at the station. You could also have the students work individually or in groups of four. There is a sheet for students to show their work.
I have included two versions. In the first, the problems and answers are in corresponding colors. That way, if a student drops an answer, you know which Poly Problem Solver it belongs to. In the second version, all the problems and answers are in black. Here you can print them on four different colored sheets of paper. I prefer cardstock for the weight and feel, but plain copy paper works, too.

Look out for this activity and many others in my eighth 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.
