To help students organize information and begin to study for the test at the end of our expressions and equations unit, I created this list of 'info to know'. The list consists of 19 pieces of information that students need to know to be able to solve the types of problems on the test (identifying coefficients and constants, simplifying numerical and algebraic expressions, solving one-step through multi-step equations, and writing equations from story problems). However, the 19 items have several blanks missing.
As a review activity, I give students a few minutes to fill in as many as they can on their own or looking things up. Then, I give them a few minutes to move around the room and get answers from one another. Finally, we play a game of around the world sharing answers with chances to 'steal' for stickers or candy if a wrong answer is given. Students can then use the completed information as a study aid and to help them complete their study guide problems.
