Partner Power activities are nice because each student solves a different set of problems and must do his/her own work, but when the partners compare answers they should be the same. This helps students build confidence as they verify correct solutions, identify errors, and correct their work. Discussions between partners are often great learning opportunities!
This lesson focuses on solving one step equations involving addition and subtraction of positive and negative integers.
