Rather than using a boring old Translating Algebraic Expressions Worksheet to teach this lesson we made a Variables and Expressions Game that requires students get a grasp of Translating Algebraic Expressions if they want to win!

## First you will need to download the Translating Algebraic Expressions Activity by clicking the button below!

Once you have downloaded and printed the translating algebraic expressions game cards and cut them apart.

The cards contain verbal expressions and algebraic models that are to be matched. Allowing students to work in groups or pairs stimulates discussion.

**ADVANCED LEVEL CARDS:**

There is set of cards included for students who need to be challenged. These cards are pink and look like this:

**TEACHER HACK:**

The cards are colorful. I would laminate then and keep them for future use. This is a time saving hack. Why just toss them in the trash when you know you will use them again next year? Be efficient! That is how great teachers are made. They do not waste time and stress repeating the same time-consuming tasks every year. Put these cards in with your materials for this lesson so you do not have to rethink, research, and recreate this game every year.

**DON’T HAVE A COLOR PRINTER?**

No Worries! The set is also available without the color and artwork if color printing is not available or cost prohibitive.
