Algebraic Expressions such as 2x + 3, x-y, 2m - 4n and others are like alien or foreign language to many students. They do not fully comprehend the meaning behind them.
This lesson and worksheet combined together shows the representation of Algebraic Expressions using physical objects, thus, making it more integated to the real world. It aims to create awareness on the part of the students about the existence of algebraic expression in the real world.Moreover, it has a lot of drawing tasks which students will enjoy as they do the worksheet.
The lesson and worksheet is divided into several pages:
Page 1:Motivation Part of the Lesson and 1st Example on how to represent Algebraic Expressions through objects.
Page 2: It shows a 2nd Example on how to represent Algebraic Expressions through objects.An exercise problem follows.
Pages 3, 4 and 5: Worksheet
Pages 6,7,8 and 9: Answer Key
