The Number System, Expressions and Equations, Algebra, Linear Functions, Data and Statistics. A comprehensive introduction to Algebra. These missions are aligned with Common Core Standards from the categories Number and Quantity, The Number System, Expression and Equations, Algebra, Functions, Statistics and Probability. Now with four additional missions on Exponential and Quadratic Functions at no additional cost!
The Whole Enchilada! Delicious math morsels for small groups to share. Base jumpers, car races, sailboats and genies are sprinkled about liberally to connect problem-solving to a real-world narrative.
The zip file includes:
★36 Missions (over 300 pages, no fluff)!
★A two-page Quick Start guide for teachers for each mission. Detailed and helpful!
★Selected Answers in pdf form.
★Selected Answers online, password protected. For students to correct at home!
There are four chapters:
This chapter has it all: fractions, irrational numbers, scientific notation and more, in real-world contexts of earthquakes, boats, birthdays and bubblefish! Ok, the last one's not real world, but it's in there!
Expressions and Equations
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!
The magic of linear functions explored with genies, road trips, base jumpers, gym memberships and more. Students create functions to model and visualize real-world scenarios, and create equations to answer questions about those scenarios. Lines aren't just lines, they are powerful models of the world. Fun!
Data and Statistics
Heart rates and marathons, coins and NBA heights, this bundle gives students the chance to explore shape, center, and spread with coins, dice, heights, shoe sizes and more. They also explore linear regression and even get a little normal distribution. Deep but accessible!
And now, four missions of Exponential and Quadratic Functions at no extra cost!
Bought individually the Missions would cost over $100, here they are offered at a discount! Great, classroom-tested, student-centered collaborative missions that empower students and give them a strong foundation in the world of Algebra!

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.
