This activity will have students solving linear equations. Students will be given a 9 by 9 grid and worksheets with 45 problems, divided uniformly into 5 levels.. Each problem comes with a puzzle piece. The solutions to the problems tell students where in the grid to copy the figure in that puzzle piece. The end result will be a picture of a unicorn.
The levels are as follows:
Level 1: One-step equations
Level 2: Two-step equations
Level 3: Distributive property and combining like terms
Level 4: Variable on both sides of the equation
Level 5: Word problems
