If you think about math as a language, expressions and equations are the sentences. This unit brings students into the world of “math language”, learning how to write complex expressions in different forms and convert numbers in one form to another (i.e.decimals to fractions). Last, students will apply the order of operations to interpret and solve simple algebraic equations.
Your students will have a blast as they use perimeter in a real-world scenario to plan their very own carnivals in the school gym. Students will choose their activities and use their calculated dimensions to map our their carnival on the provided graph.
x marks the spot that might confuse pre-algebra students. These materials help students understand how to solve basic algebra equations. Even though solving for x is a more advanced math skill, we’ve included worksheets that teach basic algebra equations through coloring because every student loves to color even if they don’t love algebra. It might help to review multiplication facts before getting started.
