This activity is great for review or a competition. Students are individually accountable for their solutions, however, have the support of a group.
Arrange students into groups of 4. Assign each student a letter (A, B, C, and D).
The students will individually solve the equation that corresponds with their assigned letter. When students have finished solving the equation, the group will add all of the solutions to find the sum. The teacher checks the group’s sum.
If the sum is not correct, have groups work to check each equation and resubmit new sum.
