Equation Invasion is a board game that helps students practice solving one and two-step equations. Students must solve equations to help them move around the game board. Landing on a "Test Your Luck" spot adds some luck into the game, as these cards either move a player forward or back spaces. Players can also land on the "Switch It Up" space, which allows them to swap pieces with any other player!
