This activity contains 8 expressions and 4 matching cards to go with each expression. 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.
This set is part of a bundle available at the link below.
Equivalent Expression Bundle
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.
