Solving Equations 1. Students get one of the cards. You can do this activity with only the +/- cards, the multiplication/division cards, or with all the cards. 2. The cards either contain an equation or a statement that needs translated into an equation. 3. Students look at their card and then find the person in the room with the card that matches theirs. 4. When they find their match, they solve the equation.
