Students move among one row as a team; for a competitive twist, you can have the teams compete for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place finishers The "Hot seat" means students work only one step at each seat; work ONE STEP and STAND. When everyone in the row is standing, move back one seat (the last person moves up). SIT and REPEAT until all parts of the problem are complete.
This activity is challenging because there are a couple ways to begin writing and solving these equations. This activity requires students to..
-->write equations using the Distributive Property
-->show all steps to solve
-->check solutions, and
-->answer the question asked using a complete sentence
If you want your students engaged and working toward automaticity related to this skill, then this “hot-seat” activity is what you need!
