Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

Sixth and seventh graders explore the concept of simplifying algebraic expressions. They review the order of operations and apply properties to simplify and compare them. The author suggests using a "Boxes Game" as a motivator to get teams practicing the new skills. The lesson is not exciting, but it does serve its purpose.
