Algebra. A Guidebook for Teaching.
Goodman, Terry A.; And Others
This book provides a general framework for organizing the instructional program in algebra. For each topic, a general approach for instruction, together with specific strategies, activities, and resources that can be used daily, are provided. Also included are worksheet pages that can be used with students. Most activities provide for student involvement; the focus is on helping students learn to apply algebra concepts and skills. For each topic, the book provides an introduction to the concepts in that chapter; a list of specific objectives for students; teaching strategies, sequences, group and individual activities, instructional materials and worksheets; challenge problems; a sample evaluation; and an annotated list of resources. Chapter 1 concerns planning to teach algebra, followed by chapters on number systems, solving equations and inequalities in one variable and in two variables, working with polynomials and with rational expressions, functions, problem solving and applications of algebra, and quadratic equations and functions. Appendices contain addresses for resources, reproduction pages and sample answers, microcomputer activities, and a feedback form. (MNS)
