This set contains two sets of cards of What Doesn't Belong. The first set contains 5 expressions and 4 matching cards to go with each expression. The first set contains integers. The second set contains 8 expressions and 4 matching cards to go with each expression. The second set contains variables.
Students work together to find out which expression isn't equivalent to the original expression. This is great for partner work, math stations, or small group intervention. This set includes expressions containing variables.
How to Play
Print the file and cut out the page that has 4 boxes to make 4 expression cards.
At the beginning of each set, there is an original expression.
Students work in groups to find 3 cards equivalent to the original expression and one expression that doesn’t belong.
Have students write using math reasoning and/or math properties why they chose the one that doesn’t belong.
I’ve included a black and white and a color set for ease of printing.
