# Evaluating Algebraic Expressions Guided Notes w/ Doodles | Sketch Notes Lesson

## Overview

Teach 7th grade students evaluating algebraic expressions through substitution using this Guided Notes & Doodles resource. Students evaluate algebraic expressions by substituting rational numbers (positive and negative integers, decimals, fractions) for variables using order of operations. It contains 12 pages total, including guided notes, a practice coloring worksheet, a maze, and a real-life math application. It works well as graphic organizers, scaffolded notes, and interactive notebooks. And it's artsy—if your students love color by number, color by code, or sketch notes, they'll love these lessons.

• ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “My students really enjoyed these notes. I needed an additional resource to reteach this material before our end of the year assessment, and this was perfect.” - Ashley H.

• ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I used this resource with students who typically struggle to remain engaged in mathematics. They remained very engaged and didn’t hesitate to fix mistakes and complete their work. Great resource!” - Carissa S.

• ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “These doodle notes kept my students engaged through the whole lesson. I was shocked how many actively participated and remembered from the notes. They are now requesting them every day.” - Rebecca S.
