Looking for a fun, no-prep algebraic expressions review game to play with your math classes? This unique moving targets game, which covers writing, evaluating, and simplifying algebraic expressions is sure to be a hit with your students!

*** This game is an html file that works on BOTH PCs and MACs! Download the FREE Demo Moving Targets Game to ensure that it works on your computer! ***

***This resource is included in my Algebraic Expressions Bundle, as well. ***

This comprehensive review of algebraic expressions features 25 questions of varying difficulty levels spanning 5 different category topics:
- writing expressions from verbal phrases
- evaluating algebraic expressions
- simplifying expressions using just the distributive property
- simplifying expressions by combining like terms & using the distributive property
- identifying the parts of an algebraic expression

***Please note that the problems require an understanding of integer operations, as both positive and negative numbers are included. ***

The moving targets game features 25 questions of varying difficulty levels spanning the 5 category topics listed above - each represented with a different color balloon. Each topic has a question worth 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500 points. (Harder questions are worth more). You can play with 2, 3, 4, or 5 teams or play without teams if you do not want to play competitively.

Simply click on the screen (or have students throw a koosh ball or small stuffed animal at the board if you have an interactive whiteboard that supports touch) to select one of the balloons moving around the screen to bring up a question. Have students answer the question, check their answers by clicking the "answer" button, and award points to the teams. Continue until all balloons have been selected or you run out of time. Final scores and standings will be displayed when the game ends.

(If your students struggle to select the moving balloons, you can "freeze" the screen by clicking the "animate" button.)
