PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity will get your students out of their seats and working cooperatively in small groups. They will use their knowledge of the solving equations in order to solve problems. Problems include:
*word problems
*proportions
*variables on both sides
*multiple variables on one side (combining like terms)
*literal equations

This is one of my favorite activities to do as a review & as a way to deepen students’ understanding of concepts that they learned in a unit. This activity is one that the students actually enjoy. If I put the same questions on a worksheet, I might hear groans. Instead, they see this as a game, and they work hard to complete the story. Each correct answer gives students a piece of information about a famous person, and they LOVE trying to figure out who it is!

All you have to do is post the questions around the room, assign students to groups, & give them their answer sheets. The next thing you know, you have a classroom full of actively engaged students who are working together to solve problems. Sound too good to be true? Try it, and you will become a believer, too!
