Group Activity Cards

Algebra

Number of players: 2
Materials: Index cards
Double Take

Copy onto cards the equations shown below. Shuffle the cards and place them face down in a pile. Decide which partner will go first.

Equations to put on cards:
 
 
x + 34 = 52
 
9 + x = 20
 
x - 6 = 23
 
x + 17 = 51
 
x + 4.85 = 9
 
x = 4.85
 
x = 18
 
x + 8.7 = 19.5
 
 
14.15 + x = 19
 
x = 14.8
 
x = 29
 
x - 2.3 = 12.5
 
x = 4.15
 
 
x = 34
 
x = 17
 
x = 10.8
 
x = 11

Each partner begins with 50 points. In turn, each partner removes cards from the pile until he or she finds two cards containing equivalent equations. Subtract 1 point for each card taken. Combine and shuffle all the cards. Then repeat the procedure. The winner is the partner with the most points after five rounds.
