This differentiated golf game gives your Algebra students practice with properties (reflexive, symmetric, transitive), solving equations, solving literal equations, writing equations and solving equation applications, and set notation.
The game consists of 6 holes. Students pick one question to do for each hole. Questions vary in difficulty. Easier questions are worth Par, while harder questions are worth Birdie or Eagle. Upon completion, students bring it to the teacher to get it checked. The teacher writes the number of points earned for each hole in the flags. A correct answer earns the designated points. An incorrect answer earns a Bogey for the hole (Par + 1). Each student tallies his/her score and turns it back in to the teacher. Once everyone is completed, the teacher announces the “winner” of the golf tournament.
For added fun, give the students golf pencils to use for the day! Or, assign golf teams and tally scores by team instead of by individual.
Early finishers can practice their equation solving skills by finishing the other questions in each hole.
TWO VERSIONS-- Expanded version for work space, and condensed version -- perfect for copying front to back on 1 page of paper.
