Create a few Valentine’s Day smiles with this solving two-step equations practice. Valentine themed answer messages spice up regular practice and make grading a snap!
The Holiday Fun:
Students solve 15 equations (out of 26) before receiving one of the 6 Valentine cards. Students use answers to decode the Valentine’s hidden message. I enjoy hand-selecting the recipient of the message, matching the message to the student’s personality. Since the Valentine is addressed “To My Wonderful Teacher,” students are essentially sending you, the teacher, the Valentine when they turn in their work. “Oh what thoughtful students I have!”
Solve equations in the form of px+q=r or p(x+q)=r. Find two versions of this two-step equations practice, each with 26 equations. One version emphasizes operations with decimals. Both versions have the same solutions. Therefore, easily differentiate by using both versions simultaneously without any hiccup in the activity (if you want).
