I developed this game for my year 9s equation work. I found it very hard to get students to practice solving equations because they found it dry and boring so here comes a game!
The set contains 18 cards.
1. In groups of 2-4, scatter the cards facing up. Each card contains a fish (solution) and a bait (equation). The players randomly draw a card to start with.
2. They solve the equation on their own card and the solution will match the fish on another card.
3. The card with the correct solution then goes into the players hand and they could use that bait for another fish.
4. If the fish is already in another players hand, he could take it off him.
5. The game ends when a player run out of cards or if all the fish is taken.
6. The player with the most fish wins.
The key is to solve as many as they can and as fast as they can.
I have also made an expansion pack for the top students! The equations are harder. I laminated them on colour paper so the sets won't get mixed up.
