For some students, combining like terms is confusing. With this introductory activity, the topic of like terms is made as simple as possible.
Each term is a set a shapes. Sets of the same shape are called like terms. Simplify each expression by combining like terms.
Use coefficients instead of redrawing all of the shapes.
For example, 3 circles + 2 squares + 1 square + 4 circles = 7 circles + 3 squares
There are no exponents, variables, or coefficients to get in the way of young learners.
