I created this game for my common core math stations. 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. I recommend laminating them to keep at the station.

CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.A.2b Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms (sum, term, product, factor, quotient, coefficient); view one or more parts of an expression as a single entity. For example, describe the expression 2 (8 + 7) as a product of two factors; view (8 + 7) as both a single entity and a sum of two terms.
