Product Description
In this activity, students will start with a problem set (a system of equations) and solve it. The teacher posts 12 problems and answers around the room. When a team finds a solution (ordered pair), they move to that poster. They write down the letter of their solution, and then solve the new problem (“Now solve:”). They continue to move around the room finding answers to the previous problem, writing down the letter and solving a new problem. The total set of 9 problems spells out I LOVE MATH.

The activity allows the students to work at their own pace, and for a teacher to focus on a given group of students OR at a given problem that may pose a challenge.

This set of 9 problems contains 3 that are best (easily) solved by graphing, 3 that are easily solved by substitution, and 3 that are more easily solved using the most simple form of substitution, Equal Values Method. All answers are integer ordered pairs. There are also 3 “gotcha” problems that can be used to "check" students' honesty and work completion.

Key Words: Systems, Systems of Equations, substitution, graphing, game, activity, movement, engagement, puzzle, 8th-10th grade practice skills and standards,
