<strong>Solving Systems of Equations by Elimination</strong>

Solving Systems of Equations by Elimination can be a bit tedious.  Here is a fun way to get students engaged and keep them on task.  Students often find solve the systems of equations by elimination worksheets boring but they LOVE scavenger hunts!  You will love it because students will stay on task, it is super low prep (just print the slides and stick them to the wall) and your students will think you are the most fun math teacher everThe students will love it because they get to move around and get immediate feedback by “hunting” for their answer.

This scavenger hunt includes 2 versions.  The first version requires students to create rearrange the terms (write equivalent equations) in order to get the variables and constants “lined up” in order to continue with the elimination method.  The second version has the same questions, but the variables and constants are already lined up. You can use either version or mix and match the questions.

How Scavenger Hunts Work (spoiler alert...super easy and low prep! Woohoo!)

1. Print the signs.
2. Hang them around your classroom (I have them shuffled already so you can place them in the exact order they come off the printer, if you wish.)
3. Pass out the student worksheet or have students work on loose leaf.
4. Assign a starting sign for each student.
5. Students answer the question on that sign and then “hunt” for the answer on the other signs in the room.  When they find it they then complete that question and then hunt for that answer, etc.
6. Sit back and enjoy watching your students working hard!
7. If students answer all of the questions correctly, they will end up back where they started.
