Students are guided to understand, simplify and evaluate polynomial and exponential expressions. Students also develop algorithms to solve linear equations. These missions are aligned to Common Core Standards from the Equations and Equations category (middle school) and the Algebra category (high school). Magical genies who transform candies give a context for the creation of expressions and equations.
The fun stuff:
Magical genies who transform candies give a context for the creation of expressions and equations. A little history of algebra is explored as well! Later, students explore equations from physics to give a concrete context for writing and solving equations. An efficient unit which prepares students to work effectively with functions!

About Courage To Core:
We all have an innate curiosity about how the world works. We are wired to experiment at the edges of our knowledge, to look for patterns and to draw conclusions. Mistakes are the welcome surprises which help us refine the experiment. In a student-centered classroom, students collaborate to ask questions, gather data, interpret results and articulate understanding. Success at the edge of knowledge demands persistence and creativity. Courage To Core provides a context for students to work together to become the agents of their success and the owners of their cognition.
