Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

In this activity, student's will identify parts of an algebraic expression using correct mathematical terms, identify what they perceive as like terms and use their knowledge of combining like terms to simplify algebraic expressions. At the end, there is a quick check for understanding where students rate their knowledge on a scale of 0-5.
