Awesome game that allows students to practice identifying like-terms, then combining them. Students will be so engaged in this game, that they will forget they are practicing math. Great for building strategy skills as well.
Directions: Connect boxes that contain like-terms and highlight or color them with your given color. Boxes that are vertical horizontal or diagonal can be connected, and you can connect as many boxes as possible. Once you’ve connected your boxes, you must simplify the terms, by combining the like terms. Write your final answer in your table. Your opponent will check your answer with a calculator. If it is correct, you earn all of the points in the upper right corner of the boxes you connected. Place those points in your scoreboard. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.
