4 Arm Shapes & Other Visual Algebra Experiences

Summary

4 Arm Shapes looks like a text book exercise but by approaching it as a mathematician might and drawing on best practice teaching craft, it becomes a challenge that introduces generalisation in words and symbols, substitution, solution of equations, equivalent algebraic expressions and linear graphs in a concrete, visual manner that makes sense. If your students don't seem to 'get it' with a text-based approach to algebra, then building in more of these visual algebra experiences might make the difference. So might a menu-based approach offering choice to students and we will look at a couple of ways of doing this.
