PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Why should solving multi-step equations be completely boring!?!?! This puzzle has 12 multi-step equations (with fractions that must be cleared), whose solutions provide clues to a word phrase. (Word phrase uncovered is quote from legendary UCLA coach John Wooden - Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard)

*** NEW *** Complete scanned solutions of all equations are included at the end of the document.

Printing options are included - print one per page or two per page to save paper. TWO MODIFIED VERSIONS also included (with 4 options or 3 options) for students who have difficulty with multi-step processes.

Solution is included.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.C.7a Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent equation of the form x = a, a = a, or a = b results (where a and b are different numbers).
CCSS.Math.Content.HSA-REI.A.1 Explain each step in solving a simple equation as following from the equality of numbers asserted at the previous step, starting from the assumption that the original equation has a solution. Construct a viable argument to justify a solution method.
