Provide your students with a hands-on kinesthetic method of solving multi-step equations. Using these pinch cards will help them remember the required steps.
I suggest you laminate the pinch cards before cutting them apart. (When you cut them apart, you should have 2 pinch cards, each with 5 sections. Do not cut apart the 5 individual steps!)
As you work through problems, have the students “pinch” the step that you must complete before moving on to the next step.
