Words to Expressions – Matching Activity


A great resource for prompting discussion around forming expressions.

Students are faced with 9 matching pairs of expressions and their respective worded counterparts. As this is a topic which students often find challenging, this resource is helpful for linking a worded sentence with an algebraic expression.

This resource could be used as a ‘cut and stick’ activity, laminated for repeated use or printed out for students to write down the matching pairs using the codes on the cards.

It is ideal for small groups or pairs but can be completed individually too.

UK: Suitable for both Key Stage 3 and 4 students.
