Product Description
This product is a variation of a Four in a Row Game to review solving absolute value equations. The game consists of a game board, eight absolute value equations, and a cover page. This game can be played Teacher vs. Class or student vs student.

I played this yesterday with my Algebra 1 class. When it was my turn, I modeled for students how to solve the absolute value equations from the cards I turned over. When it was the students' turn, they solved their equations on a whiteboard. I told them I would randomly select a student's whiteboard to use to represent the class's solution, which in turn prompted students to collaborate and share their reasoning with each other.

For game pieces, I use color tiles. The game provides a quick, effective way to break up a lesson on solving absolute value equations.

The directions on the game board says, "Shuffle the cards. Taking turns, flip over a card and solve the absolute value equation. Place markers on the solutions. Keep playing until the entire board is filled. To score, each 4-in-a-row gets 4 points and each 3-in-a-row gets 3 points. The winner is the player with more points at the end of the game. Note: a “string” is either a 4-in-a-row or a 3-in-a-row, (not both!)"
