This project is a great class activity and an authentic assessment on solving equations with variables on the same side. Through this project students will demonstrate their skills on simplifying polynomials by combing like terms on the same side of an equation and solving a 2- step equation after that.
Equations are enlarged, should be cut, possibly laminated and posted around the classroom. The students start their scavenger hunt with any problem to solve on their worksheets and then the correct answer will them to the next equation. There are 10 equations that students should solve.
It’s a fun activity for the students in the classroom. It gives them the chance to move around. It’s an easy assignment to grade. A key is provided for teachers.
