This brochure provides ready to go practice or assessment for algebra – it addresses the fifth grade algebra concept of using variables to write expressions.
To prepare your brochures, print the PDF provided at the bottom of this post. Then, copy front to back and fold! If available, print on bright, colored paper for a bit more flare.
In this resource students are required to use what they know about variables to write algebraic expressions for situations. One written explanation response is also required when completing the brochure. This printable was designed to offer extra practice for students who have been taught this skill. Use as practice after your lesson, for homework or place at a center.
This brochure was designed with the 5th grade standards, but depending on your classroom, it might fit into fourth or sixth grade rooms to provide differentiation for the different levels of mastery you see in your students. You might choose to have students complete it independently at a math center for review or use it as a resource for small group remediation of 5th grade algebra concepts.
If you have any great activities you use to help teach your students how to write expressions using variables, we would love for you to share below in the comments section so that other teachers can benefit from your creative ideas!
