This activity is designed to help students connect various representations (verbal, tabular, graphical) of linear functions. The activity is designed to be completed in groups of two.

A set of four practice sheets on solving multi-step equations. Students will complete these worksheets in groups of four. Teacher instructions are enclosed.

Students will use a variety of different size squares to form right triangles. After recording the lengths of the sides, students will square the values and look for the relationship.

This worksheet leads students to discover the differences between linear equations and identities. The well formulated questions force students to employ critical thinking.

Before algebra students can be expected to understand traditional "word problems," they need experience using algebra as a language, i.e. writing algebraic expressions and equations.

This activity, created by Arthur N. DiVito, Ph.D, simulates mixture problems by using red and white colored beads. Mixture A is 70% red, and mixture B is 40% red (as determined by weight).
