Your class will have fun practicing numerical expressions with these two fun sets of Valentine’s Day math activities. The first set of activities is based on matching expressions to find the total cost of phone orders for a floral shop. Students also work on discounts as they create combinations for the floral shop.
The second activity starts with a short written description of a Caesar cipher. The shifts in a Caesar cipher are related to algebraic expressions (for example, a shift of x + 2 represents shifting down 2 letters). The first part of this activity has students practice recognizing and producing different shifts. The second part of the activity is a page of Valentine’s hearts to decode and tell the expression that was used to put them in code. There is also a blank note template for students to write a coded message to a friend.
