In this activity, students will solve 2 - step equations while working in groups. There are 19 rounds to complete, in each round there are 4 different equations to solve that all have the same solution. Each student will be responsible for solving one of the four equations each round and work together to ensure all members of the group get the same answer.
Included in this download are task cards with just the questions for each round AND task cards with space to solve the equation on the paper (this version works best if you want to use plastic sleeves and white board markers - enabling you to reuse them every year).
See tips in the downloaded package for strategies I have used to make this activity a success!
: A total of 76 different equations are available. Students are only responsible to complete 1 question per round for a total of 19 questions. All equations have integer solutions. Eight rounds have a variable divided by a number. Variables are on both sides of the equal sign.
If you are not using plastic sleeves or whiteboard markers, print out and cut question task cards.
