Solving Equations Mnemonic Device

This phone was a great addition to our interactive notebooks and helped students remember the steps for solving equations. When you pass them out, be prepared for students to put them to their ear and actually try to make a call - oh teenagers! 

I have included two versions, the simple one shown above and one that gives the details of each step. I love sending students back to this page when they need a reminder later in the school year or when we do multi-step inequalities.  

We glued the phone all the way to the side of the page in their interactive notebook and did some multi-step equations right next to it. 
Here are some more ideas and activities for solving equations.

TEACH Conference

Today I led a breakout session at TEACH Conference about Hands On Math. It was so much fun to share the fun activities I do in my classroom with so many passionate educators. My absolute favorite go-to resource is Tarsia Puzzles. They are easy to make and super engaging for students. Here is the link to download the problem. I can't wait to see how this changes your classroom. Download Tarsia Puzzle Program here
