Algebraic Expressions and Variable Relationships Math Games

In this series of games, your students will learn how to use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem that change in relationship to one another. The Algebraic Expressions and Variable Relationships learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 6.EE.C.9 as written in the common core national math standards.

Scroll down for a preview of this learning objective’s games and the concepts.

Concepts Covered

Construct and solve equations with two variables to express relationships between two quantities that vary together. Dependent variable will vary depending on the value of the independent variable. The independent variable will only vary depending on circumstance. Use tables to show the relationship between the variables. Use the two variables as (x, y) coordinates to graph on a coordinate plane and show the relationship between the variables.

All given variables that are represented by the same letter have the same value and so can be added or subtracted. The variable represents all the solutions that satisfy the equation or inequality. Fractions and decimals can be used in the problems.
