Students will simplify 18 algebraic expressions using Google Sheets. This activity is suitable for simple combining like terms practice with up to 4 terms ( x terms and constants). Distributive property will not be used in this novice level for simplifying expressions. Two levels provide easy differentiation:
Level 1: x-terms and constants only with integers between -10 and 10
Level 2: x-terms and constants only with integers between -50 and 50
Correct answers will be indicated by the text color changing from red to black and students will be rewarded with colored pixels appearing in the mystery image.
Incorrect answers will be indicated by the text color staying red and colored pixels will not be rewarded.
The mystery pixel art image will be revealed upon answering all 18 problems correctly.
This resource works well as independent practice, collaborative practice, homework, extra credit or even as an assignment to leave for the substitute!
