Hands-down, Algebra is the best math. I know some Geometry teachers will disagree, and my own Algebra 2 heart aches a little with this confession. Algebra is the first time students are introduced to 2 variable equations. In this post I will highlight activities for teaching and reviewing linear equations.
Real-World Algebra Activity. Use A variety on Items around the classroom. Set a variable and a price to represent each item. (You can even allow the students to determine the prices). Have the students shop for items or create a shopping list for them.
This was such a great hands on Algebra activity to get my high school math students some practice at factoring trinomials down to a set of 2 binomials. My secondary math students really seemed to have a better hand on factoring quadratics after they did t
Students battle using their math skills to attack their opponents ships. Correct space and solution = a sunken ship. Algebra fun at it's best! - Can adapt to other areas such as finding the area, perimeter, order of operations
My Algebra students loved this Quadratic Equation activity. It was the perfect way for my students to get some practice solving quadratic equations. I will love doing Algebra activities like this instead of regular Algebra worksheets.
