This simple activity is a great review for students who have been working with solving systems of equations, know the vocabulary, the steps, and how to choose a best method for solving. It is a simple fill in the blank activity where students use a word bank to complete the "notes" about systems of equations.
Note: With my 8th grade students I differentiate between "Equal Values" method and substitution. My students learn that equal values is a simple substitution method, but we begin with equal values before substitution. This activity uses BOTH as separate ways to solve systems. If you do not do this, your students may be confused or unable to complete the activity.
I copied the blanks on white paper and then the word banks on colored paper and had the students cut out the words and sort them into the blanks and then tape their final answers down. This made it a good interactive team activity. However, it could easily be used as an exit slip, a warm up, etc.
Key Words: Systems, Systems of Equations, solving, notes, review, vocabulary, process.
