Inequalities can be a difficult concept for some students to grasp. Most of the time, it is due to very common mistakes. One of the most common being forgetting to flip the sign. In this challenge, students are faced with some common mistakes. Their job is to identify these mistakes in hope that they will not make the same mistakes in the future.
This is an engaging game that is great in holding students attention!
★ For each challenge, students are to be given nine challenge cards.
★ Students should look through sides A and B on each card. One inequality is solved correctly, while the other has a “common mistake”.
★ Students should choose which one is solved correctly and either circle it on their answer sheet or place it in the correct pile. (Answer sheets and category letters are both included.)
★ Students should continue until all nine cards are complete, and then they may move on to the next challenge.
