This project allows students to assess their knowledge of algebraic expressions through their learning style. There is a menu of choices where students are guided to an activity based on how they prefer to think/learn. This assesses 7.EE.A.1 7.EE.A.2 and 7.EE.B.3 for Common Core. 6.EE can also be used if you tweak the rubric a bit. Allowing choice really creates buy-in from students and gets them excited to show what they know.
Grading is simple as all activities have the same requirements of providing an example, solution, and explanation for each of the following: Writing Algebraic Expressions, Evaluating Algebraic Expressions, Distributive Property, and Combining Like Terms.
A grading rubric is provided, as well as a link to a graphic organizer if students choose the structural route.
Please adjust this as needed to fit your classroom. Thank you for viewing!
