This is a solving two step equation activity meant to be completed in partner groups. Each page has two lists of two step equation problems. These lists are labeled “partner 1” and “partner 2.” Each equation is different, but the value students will get when they solve for x will be the same. This allows students with a way to check their work. If partner 1 has a different answer for problem 1 than partner 2 has, students know a mistake was made and can work together to figure out what went wrong.

I have separated the 2-step equations so that there are two different types. The first page has six two step equations that involve using adding and subtracting, along with division to solve. The second page has six two step equations that involve using adding and subtracting along with multiplication to solve. An answer key is included!

There are many ways to complete this assignment. I usually cut the pages so that each partner has their own paper. I then allow students approximately 10 minutes to complete their 6 problems. Next, students get 3 minutes to converse with their partner and check their work. Finally, I give students the answers so that they can check their work quickly, following which I take a few minutes to address any concerns or questions students have. In order to mix things up I usually have student use different partners for each page.

This activity is included in a solving equations bundle which can be found here: Solving Equations Bundle
