Fall Saturday SAVY, Week 1, Adventures in Algebra (3rd-4th)
Welcome to Adventures in Algebra! Today, we developed our algebra vocabulary with the following words: term, variable, and function. We analyzed growing and repeating patterns and described the patterns with functions. Students developed models to aid in defining the functions.
Students’ algebra skills will be put to the test over the next sessions. Our class has been hired to develop an Awesome Algebra game! With each lesson, students create game cards, which will be used as a math element of a board game they’ll plan, create, and take home for real play!
You can ask your mathematics to explain the difference between a growing and repeating pattern and write a math story problem for each kind of pattern as we did on Awesome Algebra cards.
Looking forward to seeing your budding mathematicians next Saturday!
