Challenge your 6th, 7th, 8th, or high school students with these 18 Algebra task cards. Get them solving word problems, translating verbal expressions into equations, solving two-step and multi-step equations, use order of operations, and more!
I use them with my geometry students who have yet to pass the Algebra 1 EOC as a way to review with them.
Common Core Standards
Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.
CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.A.1 Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.
CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.A.2 Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.A.3 Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.
CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.B.6 Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set.
CCSS.Math.Content.7.EE.A.1 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients.
CCSS.Math.Content.7.EE.A.2 Understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on the problem and how the quantities in it are related. For example, a + 0.05a = 1.05a means that “increase by 5%” is the same as “multiply by 1.05.”
CCSS.Math.Content.7.EE.B.3 Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically.
CCSS.Math.Content.7.EE.B.4 Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.
