By Frances M. Thompson. Over 155 hands-on activities help build a firm algebra foundation. Activities take students from the concrete to the abstract-from recognizing concrete patterns, to using diagrams and tables, and finally to applying concepts through games, puzzles, and computer-based activities. Great for individual, small group, or classroom use. Includes teacher resources, reproducibles, and enough activities for a two-semester Algebra I course. Activities are easily adaptable for advanced or dyslexic students. 622 pages.
