This is such a fun and simple way for kids to practice simplifying and evaluating expressions. Encourage algebraic thinking and build a foundation for solving equations with this FREE equivalent expressions activity.
A fun game to practice finding equivalent expressions! Students will play while simplifying expressions to find matches! The cards have one variable expressions and students will use the distributive property and combining like terms to find matches!
Ditch FOIL: ditch FOIL, and use the opportunity to talk about the double-distributive property. Re-write the binomials as an equivalent expression and multiply. Set the stage for factoring and note how much more understanding factoring by parts takes on. And, now we can tackle those “messy” trinomials too.
