Excellent resource for visual learners!
In this activity, students draw models for algebraic expressions based on real-world situation. They can use the models to write and simplify expressions and also show addition of expressions. This is a great way to prepare students for writing equations in word problems!
The notes can be cut and glued into student notebooks.
A double-sided worksheet can be assigned in class or for homework.
A set of reflection questions is included. Great for interactive notebooks!
Answer key is included.
