While we love us some project-based learning in my Algebra class, getting skill practice in remains a priority and we always look for ways to make it as fun as we can. Because my students love 3 things: bad jokes, linear systems and not that second thing, we do our best to combine them and now you can see the result!
What you get:
-A colorful title page that makes a handsome objet d'Art worthy of framing (provided that you have a broad sense of what constitutes art).
-A bad joke, solve linear systems by substitution practice sheet (much like a riddle sheet). The problems progress from easier to more challenging but never get that difficult. There are two mystery numbers at the end. (It's true that some can be solved by other strategies, but the emphasis here is on solving by substitution).
-A solution key.
-A grid for showing work (with the original problems transferred to cut down on copy errors - my students make the occasional copy error when moving problems from one place to another).
-A worked-out answer key grid that shows one possible solution for each problem (I see that it's not part of the preview above but you'll get it!).
Hope you enjoy it and find it useful - let me know what you think!
