Materials: Scratch paper, a graphing calculator, 12 index cards, 2 different colored number cubes
Show Me The Numbers

Copy each expression below onto an index card. Shuffle the cards and lay them face down in a stack on the table. Let one of the number cubes represent your x-value and the other number cube represent your y-value.

Expressions to put on cards:
 
xy

4y - 3

5x + y

 
x + y

x + y - 6

x - y

 
2x - 2y

2x + 3y - 2

5x - 3y

 
3x + 2

x - 2y + 4

3x + y + 3

Player 1 begins by turning the top card over and rolling the number cubes. Both players use their scratch paper to evaluate the expression if x equals the value on the x number cube and y equals the value on the y number cube. Next, as a group, use your graphing calculator to check the answer. You receive 1 point for each correct answer. Play until all the cards have been used.
