Sometimes allowing your students to work in pairs is a great way to break up your classroom routine and facilitate small group interaction. I have often found that sometimes the best way for a student tolearn a topic is from another student. These 6 pair activities provide students with a way to work on one step equations.

There are three different types of activities. One is a set of equations that a pair of students work on simultaneously. They total their solutions to see if they are correct by matching a grand total for the sheet. Another is a variation of the dot and boxes game where students have to match solutions to earn the box. If they donโ€™t do their work correctly, the opposing student can โ€˜stealโ€™ their box. Finally, thereโ€™s a variation of tic tac toe that requires students to solve an equation before earning the right to put an โ€˜xโ€™ or โ€˜oโ€™ in the grid.

Each activity has 2 different versions so that you can use them in station, on different days or to review before a test .

Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies. For example: If a woman making $25 an hour gets a 10% raise, she will make an additional 1/10 of her salary an hour, or $2.50, for a new salary of $27.50. If you want to place a towel bar 9 3/4 inches long in the center of a door that is 27 1/2 inches wide, you will need to place the bar about 9 inches from each edge; this estimate can be used as a check on the exact computation.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form ๐˜น + ๐˜ฑ = ๐˜ฒ and ๐˜ฑ๐˜น = ๐˜ฒ for cases in which ๐˜ฑ, ๐˜ฒ and ๐˜น are all nonnegative rational numbers.
Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set.
