In this activity...
-Students work in pairs
-Students are active
-Students practice various types of one + two step equations including combining like terms on one side and some questions involving fractions
-Blackout board for students
-25 Blackout card problems (fit for 5x7 cards. Can cut out and paste on notecards.)
-Place blackout cards in the room, so students only see the problem number (not the problem)
-Students find one card to solve. Once they solve the equation, they look for their answer on their blackout board. They then write the problem number in the space provided.
-This is not designed as a competition, but it can easily be made to be one.
-The key provided makes for easy checking and progress monitoring!
This activity is fun for the students. It's a great practice activity, or it can be used as a review as well!
