This activity is a "Lab" series lesson activity designed to supplement and enhance student learning after teacher instruction.
In this "Lab" students will sit in groups of 4. Each student will draw a card (1 out of 4) to determine the starting point for solving their equation. Each student will solve their equation according to the card. The first person to solve their equation and show each individual step along the way wins! The students will then rotate their cards and play again until each student has solved the equation in each of four ways.
While this "Lab" can supplement any teacher instruction based on this topic, this "Lab" was developed to supplement the Eureka math module 1 lesson 12 for Algebra.
