Translating Expressions/Equations/Inequalities Walk-About Activity

These are printables that go along with my Translating Expressions/Equations/Inequalities Walk-About Activity. Just print, cut, laminate, and post them around the room. It works best if you have lots of whiteboard space because students will be translating and writing verbal sentences below each card. Or, just use poster paper.

Divide students into teams of 3-4, give each team a different color marker (so you know who wrote what), and assign them a place to start. They are to take the expression on the card and translate it into a verbal sentence. After a couple minutes, I have them rotate to the next station. They must read what the group(s) wrote before them, and come up with a new way to translate.

For example, the first station is n - 11. Possible translations are:

1) "A number minus 11"
2) "A number decreased by 11"
3) "Eleven subtracted from a number"
4) "Eleven less than a number"
5) "The difference between a number and 11"

It gets more difficult as they get to the end. I was impressed by the critical thinking, problem solving, and teamwork that occurred in my classroom during this activity.
