Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes as your classmates explain how they matched the solution cards to the equation cards.

Hint:

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • How did you decide which number is a solution to
    that equation?
  • Are there other solutions to that equation?
  • Could you tell what the solution was from looking at the structure of the equation?
  • Why do you think that equation has no solutions?
  • Why do you think all numbers are a solution to that equation?
