This product is a great pre-assessment to a basic Algebra Unit for a 7th or 8th grade classroom. This product will help you get a feel for how familiar your students are with basic algebra vocabulary. I suggest giving this as an opener/bell-ringer or as an assignment after the test for the previous unit. Use this before introducing any algebraic concepts for the year for a true read on your student's familiarity with these words. Students can obviously be misleading about whether or not they know the word but my advice to combat this is to have a conversation with the class about this. Remind students the whole point of pre-assessments is that they are before you have taught them- you want to see what they know now so you can help them learn! You won't know what to teach them if they aren't honest with their answers. Students respond well to candid conversations about the purpose for activities.
