This is a fun way to review algebraic expressions. I make a copy of the answer sheet for each student, and I cut the problems out and tape them around the room. The students walk around with clipboards and answer the questions. These could also be used in a center.
This is aligned with the 5th grade algebraic expressions standard. These problems can also be used for 3rd, 4th, and 6th grade students depending on ability level.
Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation "add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2" as 2 × (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 × (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
