Expressions Equations Identities Formulas

tweeked version of the resource first put up by Holyhead. Changed the definitions to make it more suitable to my pupils . An activity for that short but vital task of sorting out the difference between these 4 types of algebraic notation. Firstly a MATCH-UP activity (the preview does not indicate the matches!) of the definitions for each of the 4, then a sorting and grouping activity with examples of each. Lastly, something to do with each type - substituting, solving, identifying and proving. Answers provided Also plenary/starter activity for AFL ppt on identifying correctly
