Product Description

An introductory activity to help students get comfortable with the look and feel of algebra.

There are letters in my math! Where’s my times sign? Why does it look like a fraction?

If you’ve taught algebra, you’ve likely heard these questions too. For many students -- particularly those with math anxiety or interrupted math educations -- the first hurdle to doing algebra, is simply reading algebra. This activity helps them get comfortable with variables and with the conventions and notations of algebra.

Match cards containing  ab2with a x b x b, then add additional critical thinking questions to generate new equivalents, explain reasoning, or evaluate the terms.

Contains:

11 pairs of expressions (22 cards, in two formats)

6 critical thinking challenge cards

9 blank printable cards to create your own
