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!!!

Elementary Algebra 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. It is most critical to understand what mental model your child has established and then look to mould and correct that model giving different examples. Lets look at some of the common gotchas of algebraic learning.

Regular tic tac toe is boring by the time students get to algebra, but this doubled version could be interesting. It still seems like a worksheet designed as a game to me, but perhaps I could turn it into a Hollywood squares type game?

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.

No More Name Plates  this teacher writes the students names on their desks with sharpie paint pens and when the names need to come off you just cover with an expo dryerase marker then wipe off with a kleenex and viola!
no more name plates ~ teacher friends: great idea! ~ write on the desk using a sharpie PAINT pen, then to removesimple color over it using an expo marker & wipe clean ~ other commenters say using hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol works as well ~ helpful hint & great idea ~ from Timeouts and Tootsie Rolls: No More Name Plates
!Well, my friends, I can't stand name plates. Nope, don't like them at all! The kids pick at them, tear them, write on them, and they basically look a mess! So, my teacher buddy (Kathy at Kathy's Coordinated Class) and I came up with the PeRfEcT solution...Sharpie Paint Pens!my second most asked question is "How does it come off?" Let me tell you my friend it is simple! Just rub well with an Expo marker, wipe clean with a Kleenex, and viola! It is gone!
Sharpie Paint Pens instead of paper nameplates for kids desks. Wipes away with expo marker!
