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 activity consists of sixteen problems (eight for each partner). Students will use the substitution and elimination methods to solve systems of equations. This activity can be used for practice, as a review, as a math center, or as an assignment choice for differentiating lessons.
