PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This math center game has students practice creating algebraic expressions from expressions in word form. The phrases use a wide variety of vocabulary to allow students to become familiar with many ways of wording. Look at the cards in the preview to see the multiple phasing of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division expressions!

For example, a student is asked to write algebraic expressions for subtraction from phrases using the following wording:
*subtract from
*remove from
*minus
*lower by
*decrease
*withdraw from
*spend

This game is great for vocabulary development for English Language Learners!

Also, an extension activity is provided so that you can use the cards from the game again and again! In the extension activity, students are asked to create an input / output table. They will choose appropriate values for the unknown and use the table to make patterns.
