Students struggle with the instructional terms that they're presented with, particularly in Algebra. When asked to expand they often attempt to solve an equation that doesn't even exist. They look at the context and often don't read the instructions. This is a cute little exercise where they firstly have to match up the INSTRUCTION with the right situation and secondly they get to complete the exercise. Answers are included.
This activity is language-based, great for discussion and for reinforcing ideas . Mathematics students need variety and ask for more of these to be written. There are plenty more (including sequencing activities, clozes, 3 level guides etc) to look at in my batch of worksheets.
