4 great resources for teaching collecting like terms in algebra

Ever been teaching collecting like terms (simplifying) and just needed 20 questions you could put up on your interactive white board to set the pupils off on? Looking for the questions to be differentiated according to ability and for the answers to be on the next slide? If so, check out this pdf slideshow!

Instead of a list of questions, how about giving the pupils a ‘collecting like terms pyramid’ to climb! The worksheets work in the conventional manner where the bricks above are made by collecting the like terms from the two below. The worksheets are differentiated as easy and a bit harder.

Alternatively, just looking for a conventional worksheet, but one that has lots of scaffolding with worked examples and an explanation of the process? If so then check out this worksheet!

Hope you find these resources handy!
