Ultimate Algebra Unit Simulation!
An interactive unit that incorporates activities promoting algebraic thinking and reasoning. Working in whole class, small group/pairs, and individual situations, students explore algebra as they take a simulated trip to the zoo. There is a total of 14 mini lesson (PowerPoint SHOW format), 14 math labs, and 1-2 pages of independent work per lesson.
Your students will:
*Investigate equations, variables, patterns and functions
*Connect algebra skills with concrete materials through problem- solving situations
*Become familiar with algebraic language and display mathematical relationships through symbols, diagrams, tables, and graphs
Please see the preview for details of this unit. (The math labs require some common math class manipulatives not provided.)
