This is a set of worksheets that are involving simplifying expressions and solving equations and inequalities. They were created to give my students more opportunities to engage in common core styles of thinking. My 7th grade math students will be taking the SBAC (smarter balanced) assessment to determine their mastery of the common core standards and I did not have enough material that was similar in style to those types of questions and thus I made these to assist them in expanding their levels of knowledge. I used the sample questions from the SBAC website to generate these problems in the style of common core questions they ask my students to solve.
There are a total of 11 original worksheets. I have included two versions of each page, for a total of 22 different worksheets. I have also included an answer sheet for each page.
These worksheets cover the following topics:
Finding Equivalent Expressions
Converting Fractions and Decimals
Creating Equivalent Expressions
Combining Like Terms to Determine a Perimeter
The Distributive Property
Determining the Correct Steps to Solve an Equation
Writing Inequality Statements
