These activity sheets will help your beginning students learn how to compare different mathematical expressions.

Algebra is fun, not for everyone, though! Algebraic expressions have integers, constants, and variables, followed by their methods of operations. To compare two algebraic expressions, you require a basic understanding of algebra, i.e., its addition, multiplication, etc. Here is how we compare to algebraic expressions: Solving equations simultaneously - These expressions have variables, and to compare these expressions, you need to find the values of these variables. For example, you solve one expression for 'x' and then put its value in the second expression. Step I However, for comparison, we solve the first expression in terms of 'x' or whichever variable the equation has. Then repeating the same, we solve the second expression in terms of 'y' and name these expressions as iii or iv Step II - We equate the values we have derived. Step III - In the last step, we find out the values of linear equations.

When you compare algebraic expressions whether they are super simple or complex the first thing you need to do is to treat each expression as separate and then evaluate each expression. You will want to have each value in the simplest form possible. From that moment further, you are free to just compare each value. These worksheets explain how to compare different mathematical expressions, and rank them as greater than, less than, or equal to. Students will also practice their rounding skills.
