★“I have been looking for some hands -on materials for my pre-algebra student. I am looking forward to using yours! I like that there are only 4 possible answers. If the student comes up with a different answer, she/he will know immediately that the equation she/he just worked is not correct. The immediate feedback is so valuable. Thanks!” –Tina B.

★“I like this activity because the students still get practice but they feel like they are solving a puzzle.” –Jessica B.

★“Great multi-sensory activity!” –Buyer

These Cut and Paste Sheets are designed as more of a practice page to guide students towards getting the correct answer, rather than a worksheet for a grade (although you could still grade it if you choose!)

The first two pages together make up one Cut and Paste worksheet. The first page consists of equations in which the student must first simplify by combining like terms and then solving for the variable. The Answer Table is numbered 2 – 17, and the numbers correspond to the correct answer. For example, after solving an equation and getting an answer of 11, the student will glue that equation onto Answer Table #1 on the space numbered 11. When the student gets an answer of 6, the student will glue that equation onto space 6, etc. This provides the student with instant feedback so that he/she can make sure the answer is correct.

The second Cut and Paste worksheet consists of two-step equations, some with variables on both sides. It is more difficult than the first Cut and Paste worksheet. The student will be solving for x on all equations. To make it a bit easier, the Answer Table is divided into columns, which are labeled x=2, x=4, x=6, and x=9. All of the equations will end up with one of those numbers as an answer, which provides instant feedback.

Instant feedback is important when learning these concepts. It gives them confidence and allows them to successfully correction their errors before submitting it to the teacher.
