This is a 15 question scavenger hunt on solving equations involving square roots and rational exponents. Problems have one, two, or no solutions. Problems with extraneous solutions are included.
Scavenger hunts are a great way to get students actively engaged. I find that my students work better when they are up and moving around the room. I created this activity for my Algebra 2 class as a fun and challenging way to practice the material we had learned. I also like this activity because it is self-checking. If a student gets an answer wrong, they will not know which card to go to next. This forces them to fix mistakes and ask for help.
Print the problems out on card stock, cut them in half, and hang them around the room (laminate for longer use) and in the hallway if possible. Students can work in pairs or individually. Student recording sheet and answer key is included. Happy hunting!
