Resources for Algebra.
Caison, Becky; And Others
This document presents ideas and activities for teaching algebra. The section on "Week by Week Essentials" provides seven resources in a weekly format. It includes writing ideas that provide an algebra prompt and requires students to organize their thoughts and present them in a coherent fashion, and connections to the real world that identify situations or problems where algebra is an important tool in their investigations and explanations. Also included are specific mathematics vocabulary; ideas from teachers about organization, management, assessment, curriculum, standards, projects, and grading; calculator tips that identify the calculator routines that are most likely to be used; problems that review a recently covered concept or skill; and problems for students to do outside of class that further extend concepts or skills students have used in the past. The "Activities" section contains detailed layouts for classroom exercises designed to last for an hour or more. Supporting materials are provided in the "Blackline Masters." (JRH)
