To complete this coloring page (a graffiti-style declaration that "I LOVE MATH"), students must identify the phrases that match with expressions containing numbers and variables.
For example, the directions are to color a phrase red if it describes the expression 5 + x. Therefore, students must search the illustration for phrases like "the sum of 5 and x," "x more than 5," and "add x to 5," and color those parts of the illustration red.
With 6 colors for 6 expressions and 23 phrases involving all 4 operations, this is a fun and colorful way for students to make connections between descriptions and algebraic expressions.
