All of the problems in my multi-grade database of 42,500+ fall into various categories (construction, word problem, multiple choice, etc) and one of those is that of CONSTRUCTION. These particular problems are MOST of the ones in this group of 4 Algebra Domains (A-APR,A-CED, A-REI and A-SSE) .
I have discovered that the actual act of constructing something (a picture, graph, equation, etc.) causes a student to more fully understand a concept.
At the end of the school year (whether it is an Algebra I or Algebra II course) it might be fun to go over these as a form of review and to see how much of what has been taught actually "stuck." Also, these can be used as a "problem of the day" exercise whenever you want. My intention is to develop several of these CONSTRUCTION PDF's for the various domains and grade levels.
A weakness of online math curricula is that the act of constructing something is not (and can't be--because of the medium) emphasized at all. These problems can greatly help eliminate that weakness.
4 worksheets are included: with 63, 123, 181 and 238 problems taken from over 20 skills that are themselves subsets of CC Algebra Standards. Take your pick as to which one seems most appropriate.
Also, 7 quizzes are included, each of 10 questions, of varying degrees of difficulty.
Look at the PREVIEW to get an idea of the entire set of problems.
[The problems in All WORKSHEETS and PREVIEWS are printed in difficulty (1 [easy], 2 [not so easy], 3 [proficiency] up to 4 [mastery]) order within a skill. The actual difficulty level appears slightly to the left of the DK box of each problem in a very small font. Also, instructional references appear on worksheets but are optional on quizzes.]
