Help students master one of the most challenging topics, flexibility with numbers and expressions, with this matching activity! This is a set of 24 cards that match in 8 groups of 3. Students have to add, subtract, factor and expand to determine which expressions are equivalent.
This activity is great for independent work, group work, or to use as a station. Looking at all of the different options at once requires students to think critically about how to sort the cards.
This activity is aligned with CCSS 7.EE.A.1 but is also great challenge work for CCSS 6.EE.A.3 or any middle school classroom seeking to improve students' flexibility with expressions.
This activity includes:
- 24 matching cards in color or black and white
- Answer keys in both worksheet and card form
- Student response sheet
