This Ladder Activity consists of 6 half-sheets with 6 problems each (*Answer Key included!). Students complete the first page (individually, with a partner, or in a small group); students raise their hand when finished so the teacher can check their answers; if the answers are correct, then students receive the next set of problems; if a problem(s) is incorrect, then students get an opportunity to continue to revise their work until all problems are correct; and so on until all 6 sheets are completed correctly. The pages can also be used as homework, review worksheets, or assessments.
