Students practice solving proportions using cross products by completing a math maze!
They draw arrows to show the path that they took to get from the start of the maze to the exit.
This download contains three different mazes for teachers to use to differentiate their instruction.
Level 1 maze questions were designed for students who are struggling to pick up this concept. After cross multiplying, students simply need to divide by a coefficient in order to solve for x. In addition, all answers will be positive.
Level 2 maze questions were designed for the average student. Some algebraic "moves" have to be made in order for the student to correctly solve the problem. Specifically, a student may have to use the distributive property or combing like terms as they are working. In addition, some answers will be negative.
Level 3 maze questions were designed for stronger students as an enrichment activity. Many algebraic "moves" have to be made for the students to answer these problems. In addition, they may get "no real solution" or "all real numbers" as possible answers.
Feel free to click the preview to see how the levels build off one another.
