This activity asks students to use their knowledge of algebraic equations, and their algebraic reasoning, to create equations that match provided solutions when solved. This challenges the students to think more deeply about the numbers in an equation, how they are related to one another, and how the variable is related to these numbers as well. The activity designates different point values for creating one-step equations, two-step equations, and so on. You can modify this aspect of the activity to best meet the needs of your students. I usually have the students work with a partner or in a small group of three. This has also been a good activity to use with my math intervention students.
