Students will practice evaluating expressions as they rotate through 10 stations with this “Math Lib” Activity. The types of problems include variable replacements with both positive and negative numbers. Absolute value is also included in the expressions. I intended for these to be more challenging, as I struggle to find more difficult examples in textbooks. I would recommend using this activity with advanced 6th-7th graders, or 8th graders. The answer at each station will give them a piece to a story (who, doing what, with who, where, when, etc.).
This is a much more fun approach to multiple choice, and the students adore reading the story to the class. They get very excited to see which of their teachers is the “star” of the story.
Edit all story elements!
All slides are given in an editable format so you are free to personalize the story for your students. PowerPoint is required to edit. Only story elements can be changed, not the actual problems.
