Product Description
A set of differentiated scavenger/treasure hunts. Answers and student record cards included. Each difficulty has 10 cards.

A great active activity where students can self-check their answers.

How to: students can start at any random card, they answer the question then try to find their answer on another card. As they go they should note down the letter of each card they visit on their student record card. Once they get back to the beginning they should show the teacher their record card. The order of the letters should match the answers.

The 3 levels of difficulty are:
• Blue (easy) - solve simultaneous equations where the coefficient of x OR y is 1. E.g.
10x + y = 4
8x + y = 25

•Gold (medium) - solve simultaneous equations where the coefficient of x OR y is a factor of the other x or y E.g.
4y + 7x = 117
2y + 2x = 40

•Red (harder) - solve simultaneous equations where x and y are random integers or decimals E.g.
4y - 3x = 34.5
6y + 5x = 56.5
