In this engaging activity, students will solve simple equations that require combining like terms to successfully find the integer answers. When they do, they recreate the design in the box that contains the answer. The final product from the 25 problems is a beautiful line design with geometric properties such as symmetry, rotation, etc.
It is easy for teachers to check students' work through the answers and students can check their own progress by seeing the design develop as they work.
Great activity for 7th-9th grade students who need practice with combining like terms and solving equations.
NOTE: The preview shows the final solution, but that is not on the student work page!
Key words: equations, solving, combining like terms, whole number answers, 2 step equations, 3 step equations, simple equations, activity, coloring, puzzle
