Description:

To give them an opportunity to practice double negatives and absolute values, students do several practice problems with them, but with a twist. Every student gets a flashcard with a problem on it and they are told that they need to trade their card with somebody else until they have seen all 12 problems. In this way, every student practices 12 distinct problems and must work with other students to get the cards they need, which promotes student interaction. When the activity is finished, students come together as a class to discuss the answers they got to each of the problems.
