This worksheet was created to give students varying levels of elimination problems to work on. The students might have been introduced to the process already, or it may be used as an introductory worksheet, depending on your class.
The worksheet is tiered, with easier problems first with increasing difficulty from section to section.
The sections include an area where the paper may be stamped to once mastery of each section is achieved. This serves as a good motivator for the students.
The worksheet is arranged as follows:
Section 1: no multiplying required
Section 2: multiplying by -1 required
Section 3: multiplying by a number other than -1 required
Section 4: multiplying both equations by numbers other than -1
Section 6: Students need to determine the different ways the system can be solved
Section 7: word problems solved by elimination
Answers in random order are included on the students' copy. An answer key for the teacher is provided as well.
