Hands-On Algebra!: Ready-to-Use Games & Activities for Grades 7-12

Algebra is for everyone not just the college-bound! With technology changing rapidly, business and industry are requiring more employees to have a better understanding of mathematics than ever before and, in particular, to have greater knowledge of algebra. Hands-On Algebra! has been designed to help you meet the needs of a all your students, no matter their learning style or ability. It covers content and contains materials sufficient for a two-semester course in Algebra I.

Each objective in Hands-On Algebra! is presented in a sequence of three lessons or activities. Activity 1 involves physical models in the development of the concept, and Activity 2 uses pictorial or graphic models to help students bridge from the concrete to the abstract level of thinking. Both activities allow students to generate and record a variety of examples from which to seek patterns. Activity 3 encourages exploration and application of newly learned concepts and skills through cooperative games, puzzles, problems, and graphic calculator or computer activities. Most objectives also offer a learner option which provides additional work and activities.

You will find each activity has complete teacher directions, materials needed, and helpful examples for discussion, homework, and quizzes. Carefully selected examples are provided in all lessons to assist the teacher. To make your job easier, most activities include time-saving reproducible worksheets or game pieces for use with students. Use alone or in conjunction with a traditional algebra textbook.
