Your students are the "doctors" and their equations are their "patients" in this interactive multi step equation activity. They travel in "intern groups" to determine treatment plans and eventually cure their patients! This is a great, creative way to emphasize how to attack an equation compared to how to attack a disease with customized treatments.
Use this activity after teaching multi step equations. Please refer to my sketch notes to help you do that!
