Algebra - Mixed Practice (Up to Linear Equations)

This set of worksheets builds on the previous two sets. We still see some pre-algebra problems, as well as some problems involving converting phrases to algebraic expressions, and simplifying those expressions. Introduced in this set are problems involving setting up and solving basic one-variable equations.

Worksheet 3.1

In this worksheet we ask students to write expressions and equations, but do not ask them to solve.

  • multiplying and dividing fractions
  • percentages
  • writing algebraic expressions
  • writing equations

Worksheet 3.2

In this worksheet we ask students to solve equations, including ones they've written themselves. There are no equations with variables on both sides of the equation, but there are some where combining of like terms and distributive property come into play. 

  • simplifying fractions
  • adding and subtracting fractions
  • solving equations
  • writing and solving equations

Worksheet 3.3

Equations in this worksheet require students to move variables from one side of the equation to the other, as well as using distributive property, and combining like terms. In addition, we ask specific questions, such as "How much will five pens cost?", and in most cases, the question asked will not be the variable solved for, so this worksheet gives students practice in returning to the problem to find out what they're being asked.

  • order of operations with positives and negatives
  • solving equations
  • writing and solving equations
