Practice worksheet for grade 6 math on the topic of simplifying algebraic expressions. This is a review and practice for the beginning of the grade 6 algebra unit, after writing and evaluating algebraic expressions have been covered, as well as the concepts of variables, algebraic expressions, order of operations, equivalent expressions, coefficients, and like and unlike terms. Their are 14 questions in total, including:
-2 questions asking to simplify an algebraic expression from 4 terms to 2 terms by combining terms with a variable and terms without (like terms). 2-3 variable terms are grouped together and come first in the string of numbers, with 1-2 non-variable number terms following. Students must also state the coefficient of the final, simplified expression.
-4 questions asking to simplify an algebraic expression down to one term containing a variable and a coefficient by following left-right order of operations when adding and subtracting terms, all containing a variable and a coefficient.
-4 questions asking to circle yes or no regarding whether a pair of algebraic expressions are equivalent. Students must simplify most of the given expressions in order to make each equivalency determination.
-4 questions asking to simplify an algebraic expression from 5 terms to 2 terms by combining terms with a variable and terms without (like terms). Terms with a variable and non-variable number terms are jumbled throughout each expression, making the simplification process a bit more difficult.
