Equivalent Expressions

Using our Equivalent Expressions lesson plan, students learn how to identify equivalent math expressions. Students also learn about how expressions containing variables can be equivalent.


Our Equivalent Expressions lesson plan teaches students all about equivalent expressions, including what they are, how they are identified, and how variables can be included in them. During this lesson, students are asked to match equivalent expressions both with and without variables. Students are also asked to rewrite inequivalent expression to be equivalent.
