In this resource, students will create Equivalent Expressions by applying the Distributive Property to complete this dominos puzzle. This activity gives students the opportunity to practice distributing inside parentheses, a skill that many students struggle with.

Students will be given puzzle pieces to connect as well as a record sheet to record and analyze each expression in order to make sure they have the correct answers. This activity works great in small groups, stations, math centers, or self-assessing. No matter how you use this resource, students will be asking for more like it.

This activity is aligned with the 6th grade Common Core Standards: CCSS.6.EE.A.3, CCSS.6.EE.A.2b.


This activity is available to print in color or black and white. It is best to print on card-stock to re-use, or laminate. Although you can easily print and use on printing paper as well. Simply cut out matching activity and have students work in small groups and/or pairs.

Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + 𝘹) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3𝘹; apply the distributive property to the expression 24𝘹 + 18𝘺 to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4𝘹 + 3𝘺); apply properties of operations to 𝘺 + 𝘺 + 𝘺 to produce the equivalent expression 3𝘺.
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.
