This is a matching activity focused on solving literal equations. There are 32 cards (enough for up to 32 students) or 16 matches. Each student gets a card, solves for the indicated variable and then finds the student that has the card containing their answer (which is the other student's question). (See preview for an example).
All equations are real-world equations found in either math or science classes and can be solved with one or two steps. There are no squares or square roots. Some questions are very similar to make it more difficult (for example d = rt, solve for r and another card asks to solve for t). Small numbers at the bottom allow the teacher to come by quickly to check to see if they have matched themselves correctly. Directions included. 5 pages.
