Linear system solving practice in an engaging game format with an emphasis on special case systems (inconsistent and consistent dependent systems) -- this Lot Game’s name simply doesn’t do it justice. Students both compete and collaborate through this quick-prep game involving both strategy and chance.
Half of the systems in this game are special cases (10 infinitely many solutions & 8 no solution systems).
Two levels of linear system problems are included to meet the needs of your students. A complete game will have students solving 36 systems of linear equations.
Rolling dice, flipping cards, solving systems, and keeping score – find detailed game play directions in this resource on both the teacher and student papers. My students ask if we can play this game again weeks later. (I have used with both middle and low level students. While both benefited, it worked best with my middle level students.)

What makes this product a must-have?
❶ Built-in feedback:
Players compare answers to arrive at a group solution. The teacher, freed by game play, can occasionally monitor group solution sheets to ensure no errors. (I actually was able to play the game with one group and still monitor other groups.)
❷ Two Levels included:
Easily differentiate with both an easy and moderate level of practice include. With matching solutions, both levels can be used simultaneously.
❸Recognizing special case systems rewarded:
Students can strategize by recognizing special case linear systems before solving.
❹ Game Set-up
: Watch students get drawn into the spirit of the game.
Student tested. Teacher approved.
❥ Hope this product proves useful to your classroom for years to come!
