This solving equations activity is a really fun way of practicing solving equations with variables on both sides. Skills include solving equations where x is always positive, solving equations where x is an integer between -12 and 12, solving equations with parentheses and solving equations where x is a decimal.
This product includes:
★ 2 x mazes on solving equations with variables on both sides where “x” is positive only (blue top)
★ 2 x mazes on solving equations with variables on both sides where “x” is positive or negative (gold top)
★ 2 x mazes on solving equations with variables on both sides where “x” is a decimal (red top)
★ 2 x mazes on solving equations with variables on both sides where students have to use the distributive property before solving the equation (purple top)
★ Full solutions for all mazes
This is a more engaging way of practicing solving equations and great for classes where you have students of differing ability levels.
This activity is great because students can self-check the answers and most of the time they don’t realize they are answering multiple questions.
Students work their way through the maze, coloring the correct answers and following the path to the next question.
These mazes are useful for test prep, checking understanding, a fun activity at the end of the lesson or a bell ringer.
