Number of players: 3
Materials: Index cards, spinner
Spin Cycle

Copy onto cards the equations shown below, one per card. Shuffle the cards and divide them evenly. Label equal sections of a spinner "2," "3," "4," "5," "6," "7."

Equations to put on cards:
 
-2x + 1 = -3
 
 
 
-15 + 8p = 1
 
-5w - 2 = -22
 
 
 
2m - 1.7 = 6.3
 
8.4 + 2c = 20.4
 
 
 
32 - 3e = 11
 
 
6p - 2.5 = 27.5
 
18 = 2v + 4
 
-12 + 3d = -3
 
11 - 3r = -4
 

One partner spins the spinner. Each partner then removes from his or her hand all of the cards with an equation for which the number on the spinner is the solution. Try to be the first to remove all of the cards from your hand.
