### Description

As students become familiar with one-variable equations and multi-step equations, it makes sense to practice all levels of equations. SKEEBALL EQUATIONS is an interactive learning activity where students work in teams to shoot for equations to solve.

Students are posed with questions covering one-step equations, two-step equations, two-step equations with fractions and decimals, one-variable equations, and multi-step equations.

Included in the SKEEBALL EQUATIONS are:

• Notes For the Teacher
• Skeeball Poster (Full Size and Quarter Sized)
• Equation Strips for One-Step Equations, Two-Step Equations, Two-Step Equations with Fractions and Decimals, One-Variable Equations and Multi-Step Equations
• Skeeball Equations Recording Sheet
• Answer Key for Equation Cards
• Editable File for Skeeball

How Can I Use This?

Each team will pick the first player that will toss a ball (or similar) at the buckets placed in the same format as the Let’s Play Skeeball Poster. As the points increase, the level of the questions increases.

Player 1 will toss the ball toward the buckets. When they make a bucket, they will then go to that bucket and choose a slip to come back to their station and answer on their recording sheet.

Play will continue with the next player and students will continue to shoot for new equations as they have solved their previous ones.

What is This Aligned to?

All activities are aligned to Common Core (CCSS), Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), and Oklahoma Academic Standards (OAS) and are meant to be able to be used in any classroom.

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Solve real-world and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form 𝘹 + 𝘱 = 𝘲 and 𝘱𝘹 = 𝘲 for cases in which 𝘱, 𝘲 and 𝘹 are all nonnegative rational numbers.
Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients.
Solve linear equations in one variable.
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, "Does this make sense?" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.
Look for and make use of structure. Mathematically proficient students look closely to discern a pattern or structure. Young students, for example, might notice that three and seven more is the same amount as seven and three more, or they may sort a collection of shapes according to how many sides the shapes have. Later, students will see 7 × 8 equals the well remembered 7 × 5 + 7 × 3, in preparation for learning about the distributive property. In the expression 𝑥² + 9𝑥 + 14, older students can see the 14 as 2 × 7 and the 9 as 2 + 7. They recognize the significance of an existing line in a geometric figure and can use the strategy of drawing an auxiliary line for solving problems. They also can step back for an overview and shift perspective. They can see complicated things, such as some algebraic expressions, as single objects or as being composed of several objects. For example, they can see 5 – 3(𝑥 – 𝑦)² as 5 minus a positive number times a square and use that to realize that its value cannot be more than 5 for any real numbers 𝑥 and 𝑦.
