Simplifying Expressions (Distribute and Combine Like Terms) Triples Activity
This is a great way for students to practice simplifying expressions by distributing and combining like terms. There are 30 total cards in which there are 10 sets of 3 cards with the same answer. I created this activity as a twist on the classic task cards.
Students can work on their own or in teams to simplify the expressions. Once they have finished all the cards, I have them cut them out, staple their "triples", and place them in a zip-lock bag for a classwork grade. A key is provided to ensure the correct cards are matched together.
