Equations With Variables on Both Sides - Practice with Solving Multi-Step Equations:

This risk-taking strategy game of conquering territories offers a fun way to practice math skills. This version has cards for solving multi-step equations that have variables on both sides.

**This is part of a discounted bundled set: Conquest Game - Algebra Set 1 - Solving Equations --- Your students can continue playing the same game with the same opponent throughout the school year if you purchase the bundled set or other additional card sets.

With each "attack," players must solve the problem on the card. The battle result is determined by the solution. Soldiers are lost and gained until students slowly conquer one another's territories on the map.

Take a look at the preview file for game rules.

This is a two-player game. Each student in the pair will need a different color dry-erase marker to keep track of soldiers on the laminated map.

Set includes:
- map (must be printed and laminated)
- game rules (half sheet to print for each group)
- cards with equations (print and cut for each group)
- "Battle Results" chart (half sheet to print for each group)
- teacher directions

Here is a video showing how to play!

Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies. For example: If a woman making $25 an hour gets a 10% raise, she will make an additional 1/10 of her salary an hour, or $2.50, for a new salary of $27.50. If you want to place a towel bar 9 3/4 inches long in the center of a door that is 27 1/2 inches wide, you will need to place the bar about 9 inches from each edge; this estimate can be used as a check on the exact computation.
