This activity will get your students out of their seats and working cooperatively in small groups. They will use their knowledge of graphing systems of equations & inequalities in order to solve problems.
This is one of my favorite activities to do as a review and as a way to deepen students’ understanding of concepts that they learned in a unit. This activity is one that the students actually enjoy. If I put the same questions on a worksheet, I would hear a lot of whining. Instead, they see this as a game, and they work hard to complete the “maze”.
All you have to do is post the questions around the room, assign students to groups, and give them their answer sheets. The next thing you know, you have a classroom full of actively engaged students who are working together to solve problems. Sound too good to be true? Try it, and you will become a believer, too!
Below is a list of all of my systems materials:
