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.  Students will need to write expressions that match their list, Then solve each expression to determine the final cost. Students practice writing algebraic expressions and multiplying and adding decimals. (Examples are provided on webpage)

LOVE this idea for teaching translating expressions into words....post different expressions around room, give each group diff color marker and have them write unique translations for each. Genius way to make this lesson more fun!!

Math / Algebra – Double Bubble Map: Expression vs. Equation

Great example of using the double bubble in a middle school mathematics classroom. I also love this as an alternative to crowded Venn Diagrams!

Elementary Algebra is generalized form of arithmetic. It provides a language to represent problems and functions. Algebraic thinking is also one of the first forms of abstract thinking that students develop in mathematics. Lets look at some of the common gotchas of algebraic learning. | This is Excellent!! I'm loving the explanations!!!

My students always have such a hard time writing expressions and equations during our Algebra unit.  I've created a card game to help with that!  This card game gives your students the chance to hear an expression or equation and find a match.  For example, they might hear six more than a number and realize that in their deck of cards they have 6 + n.
