I created this game for common core math stations on expressions and equations. Students are challenged to match word phrases with equations having the same meaning. It can be played individually, in partners, or groups of three or four.
It works perfectly in stations as it is easily differentiated. As my students are rotating from one station to the next, I can grab the stack of cards and remove some pairs to modify the game for a lower level group.
There are 36 cards included. This is enough for three different twelve-card games or two different 18-card games.
I have groups of four rotate through stations. At this station, the groups of four split into two partner pairs. When both partner pairs finish the match, they can trade and do the other half.
For best results, print on card stock and laminate before cutting apart. Student directions are included to use as a partner activity. I recommend laminating them to keep at the station.
This activity is included in the BUNDLE Equations and Inequalities at 15% off, the BIG BUNDLE for Seventh Grade First Semster at 20% off, and the BEST BUNDLE for Seventh Grade Complete Year at 25% off!!!!

Understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on the problem and how the quantities in it are related. For example, a + 0.05a = 1.05a means that "increase by 5%" is the same as "multiply by 1.05."
