Print these cards on cardstock and laminate. Students have two different options for playing! Students will love practicing solving one and two-step equations and making sure that other players solved their equations too!
Equation Rummy: The dealer shuffles the cards and deals five to each person. The remaining cards are placed in a pile face down in the middle. The dealer turns the top card face up.
The player to the left of the dealer plays a card with the same solution as the face up card. Wild cards can be played any time. If the player cannot play a card, he or she takes a card from the pile and plays it, if possible. If it is not possible to play, the player places the card in his or her hand, and it is the next player's turn.
The first person to play all cards in his or her hand is the winner.
Equation War: For this game, the "wild" cards are removed. All of the cards are dealt out face down. Without looking at the cards, each player turns a card face up and solves their equation. The player with the card that has the greatest solution gets all the cards in play. The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins.
