Combining Like Terms Color by Number


Combining like terms can be more engaging with this self-checking combining like terms color by number to help your 6th or 7th grade math students practice with this concept.

This combining like terms math color by number set has you covered with both print and digital versions!

  • Students solve 20 (or 15) problems, self-check, AND color in both versions.

Problems require students to:

  • Combine the like terms by adding and subtracting
  • Terms include different variables (with coefficients), variables with exponents, whole numbers
  • Find the simplified expressions on the coloring page/section

This easy-prep combining like terms resource includes:

Two Print versions

Version A:

  • Problem sheet with 20 expressions
  • Coloring sheet

Version B:

  • Problem sheet with 15 questions (different from Version A)
  • Coloring sheet – less detailed than Version A

Google Slides version:

  • Same 15 problems and mostly same colors as print Version B
  • Students type their answers in the answer box
  • Students use the ‘Fill color’ bucket to color the shapes
  • Questions are not editable (they are in the background) but the shapes and numbers in the pattern ARE movable.

Two coloring pages with no numbers, so students can color the pattern their own way, for fun:-)


What teachers are saying about this resource:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “The students were able to jump right into it, thus allowing me to assist those students who needed a little extra help. This is great assignment if you want to keep students moving forward with the concept, but also need some time to slow it down for those still grasping the concept.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Great resource I utilized when we had extra time at the end of class and during my intervention period with students who needed additional practice with these specific skills. My students really enjoyed this activity!”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️“My students enjoyed this resource as review of how to combine like terms! They enjoyed the coloring part as well. I also like it is good way for students to check their work as they go.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “This was perfect! I’ve used paper versions before but this was just as easy and fun to see the variations of the shades of the colors the students used. Great way for them to check their answers without a google form.”
