This is book number 4 in the J-B Ed: Hands on series.


Lay a solid foundation of algebra proficiency with over 155 hands-on games and activities. To complement the natural process of learning, each activity builds on the previous one-- from concrete to pictorial to abstract. Dr. Thompson's unique three-step approach encourages students to first recognize patterns; then use diagrams, tables, and graphs to illustrate algebraic concepts; and finally, apply what they've learned through cooperative games, puzzles, problems, and activities using a graphic calculator and computer. You'll find each activity has complete teacher directions, lists of materials needed, and helpful examples for discussion, homework, and quizzes. Most activities include time-saving reproducible worksheets for use with individual students, small groups, or the entire class. This ready-to-use resource contains materials sufficient for a two-semester course in Algebra I and can be adapted for advanced students as well as students with dyslexia.
