If you think about math as a language, expressions and equations are the sentences. This unit brings students into the world of “math language”, learning how to write complex expressions in different forms and convert numbers in one form to another (i.e.decimals to fractions). Last, students will apply the order of operations to interpret and solve simple algebraic equations.
Discuss Fall Equations with Two Truths and One Lie
In this lesson, students will consider equations with fall pictures serving as the number value and decide which equations are true and which is a lie. The worksheets in this speaking and math lesson follow the Two Truths and One Lie game.
In this worksheet based on the game Two Truths and a Lie, students practice solving three equations and then discussing their findings. Young mathematicians will seek to determine which two equations are true and which equation is false.
In this creative math worksheet, students will each write two true equations and one equation that is false. Then they will swap worksheets with a partner and solve each other’s equations before regrouping to discuss their equations and solutions.
Get your students thinking algebraic with these materials designed to help students understand equations and expressions. The Amazing Equation Race teaches an understanding of equations with a fun game. Or, you can have students work independently to identify expressions and equations.
