Description

Halloween activity for math class! In this Halloween-themed activity, students practice solving linear equations in one variable. Students travel in pairs to eight stations as they practice solving linear equations that vary in difficulty. The equations are both two-step and multi-step. There are some with the variable on one side and some with the variable on both sides. There are also equations that have fractional coefficients, distributive property, combining like terms, and special solutions. Now includes a version for Google Drive!

Procedure:

-You can either set up the 8 stations at groups of desks or tape the stations to the walls around the room. Either way keep the images that are alike together.

-Pair students up. Assign one partner to be “A” and one to be “B.” They should record their assignment in the top right hand corner of their workspace.

-Students travel to each station as a pair. They each complete one problem based on their letter assignment. Although they are each solving a different linear equation, they can check to see if they are correct because they should have matching answers.

-Students neatly copy the original problem and show their work in the stations workspace.

-Once they solve their equation and confirm their answer matches their partner’s answer, then they check the key to find the answer and write the corresponding letter in the small box in the right hand corner of the workspace. The list of answers in the key represents both correct answers and answers that correspond to common mathematical errors.

-Students continue to go to all 8 stations. You can either allow students to move freely around the room in any order or set a timer and have students all rotate at the same time. Each station should take about 2-3 minutes.

-In the end, they should unscramble the letters to find the mystery word. They share this mystery word with you to confirm that their work is complete. The mystery word is SKELETON. I allow those students who finish first to help other students complete the activity.

Included in this product:

-8 stations (each with 2 equations that have the same solution)

Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.
Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.
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).
