Product Description
Lead your students through a "magic" problem, where you ask them to pick a number, then perform one operation at a time on the number. Eventually, you magically reveal everyone's answer....3! But how could you have possibly have known that?

Within seconds your smart and savvy students will be challenging your little trick...then you reveal the true magic, the algebra behind the problem.

This can be used as a warm up, a fun filler activity after learning equation solving steps, or as a lead in to having students create their own Magic Algebra problem for extra credit.

Includes the problem, the reveal steps with the algebra worked out, and a student page for creating their own magic problem.
