Product Description
This activity was designed for an 8th grade math class, but is better aligned to the 7th grade standards. This 2 page pdf contains 4 sets of 6 cards each, for a total of 24 cards. The 6 card sets are all equivalent expressions which simplify to the same binomial expression. There are 4 different sets. This is a great activity for partners and teams to share to work on distributive properties and combining like terms, including negatives. It is a self-checking activity, as all expressions must be part of one of the four groups.

This was a highly-engaging activity with students eager to sort the cards into appropriate groups.

While my students sorted and glued the strips onto a poster to show their work, one set could be used in a variety of ways:
a. Partners or groups sort all 24 cards into groups
b. Every student in the class gets a card and they find their "group" by finding those who are equivalent. (6 team members)
c. Every student in the class gets a card and the students have to find 3 other people who are NOT equivalent to each other to form a group. (4 team members)

The pdf comes with the groups already put together (as a built in answer key). Teachers would need to print the pages and cut the strips before sharing with students.

Advice: Printing each set on different colors will help keep groups from being mixed. You can easily laminate these to be used over and over.
