This is a fun activity that gets students working together and excited to practice solving multi-step equations! Students won't mind practicing solving equations using the distributive property with this activity. This collaborative activity is perfect to foster teamwork and peer tutoring!

To complete this activity, students must be familiar with solving equations. All of the problems require students to use the distributive property. Some problems require more steps than others, but all are multi-step equations.

In this activity, students are grouped in fours. Each student takes a card, and works the problem on the card. When all students in the group have their answers, they add them up, getting a group sum. Then, the group checks their sum with the teacher. If they are correct, they work on the next set of cards, if not, they work together to see where or which student in the group went wrong. This activity encourages peer tutoring. The problems are leveled, to help differentiate instruction.

There are eight sets of cards and four problems are in each set.

Make sure these problems are appropriate for your students - download the preview to see problem examples.

This is also part of my Equations and Inequalities Activity Bundle.
