If you are searching for a fun way to practice solving one-step equations, you have come to the right place! With over 800 equations ready to go, this game has every thing you need to play many, many rounds with your students!
Students will fill in their own game boards with the numbers within the parameters you choose, so you can play over and over and over again. I have included equations for values of x ranging from -10 to 40, so you get to decide the range of values you want to use each time you play. If you use the negative values, students will need to understand operations with negative integers, but for almost all of the other equations, only positive numbers are used.
YOU get to decide the focus of the game because you are selecting the problems you want to use each time. (Do I want to just focus on multiplication and division? Do I want to work on subtraction? Do I want to use all four operations?) You also get to decide how you want the equations to be presented by using the solutions page, which has space to solve each problem. (Do I want to write division as a fraction or not? Do I want to show multiplication with parentheses, the dot, the x, or all three?)
Even my most reluctant student wanted to play Equations Bingo, and the kids all got tons of practice without even realizing it. A great Friday afternoon activity when you need engagement and learning but also a little fun:)
Your fourteen-page download includes:
1) Cover page
2 and 3) Blank student game boards with number lines you can mark to show the parameters of the x-values you want the students to use on their boards (one with -10 to 40 and the other with 0 to 40)
4) Student solution page to show work (copy back-to-back with itself if you are going to be playing for awhile so you have plenty of space for all the problems)
5 and 6) Bingo pattern options
7-11) Equations pages (four of each operation for each value of x)
12 and 13) Teacher instructions for use
14) Credits page
