# Linear Equations (Loop Cards)

Created by
Maths4Everyone

I nearly always start my one-to-one tutorials/interventions with a loop card activity. They are also excellent when working with small groups or as a starter or plenary for a whole class.
For a list of loop cards on other topics click 👉www.tes.com/.../more....
This particular activity allows students to practise solving linear equations. I have chosen questions to maximise the need for working out the answers, rather than guessing them!

Colour coding:
All my loop cards are colour-coded to indicate the approximate level of the questions:
KS2 – red and orange
KS3/GCSE Foundation – orange and green
GCSE Higher – green, blue and purple

Further information:
In this download there are four sets of similar cards and a student chooses one of the sets and sorts them into order by answering the questions. Then they try to do it faster using a different set, which has the same questions, but a different sort order ����

My favourite use of loop cards is for two students to have different versions of the cards and race each other. They then check their answers, shuffle, swap packs and race again (quickest overall time wins!). More instructions are included in the download.

Cut out card size is approx. 65 x 90 mm.
