This engaging, ready to print resource allows students to demonstrate their knowledge of solving equations in a fun way! Students will select 16 teams (16 of their classmates, 16 professional sports teams, 16 teachers, etc.) to compete in a Solving Equations Tournament Challenge. The 16 teams are simply for fun and to increase student buy-in as the winner has been predetermined. This is an assignment that can be completed individually, in partners, or a small group. There are four separate rounds within the tournament.

Four Different Tournament Rounds
Round 1: Solving One-Step Equations
Round 2: Solving Two-Step Equations
Round 3: Solving Multi-Step Equations
Round 4: Variables on Both Sides

What's Included in this Product?
- Teacher directions
- Blank tournament bracket
- 30 different equations to solve
- Answer Key that shows the correct winners for each round

Please download the preview for more information. Please note that this product uses integers (both positive and negative numbers). It does not contain any fractions or decimals.

Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients.
Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies. For example: If a woman making $25 an hour gets a 10% raise, she will make an additional 1/10 of her salary an hour, or $2.50, for a new salary of $27.50. If you want to place a towel bar 9 3/4 inches long in the center of a door that is 27 1/2 inches wide, you will need to place the bar about 9 inches from each edge; this estimate can be used as a check on the exact computation.
Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.
Solve word problems leading to equations of the form 𝘱𝘹 + 𝘲 = 𝘳 and 𝘱(𝘹 + 𝘲) = 𝘳, where 𝘱, 𝘲, and 𝘳 are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. For example, the perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width?
