The Algebra for All Series is a set of five books filled with teacher instructions and sequenced algebra activities for 1st to 5th grades.
This series is the perfect companion resource for any mathematics curriculum or program you are currently using, and is excellent for gifted and talented extension activities.
Each book features 4 chapters that focus separately on the “big ideas” of early algebra. These big ideas are:
Equivalence and Equations
Patterns and Functions
Each grade level specific book supports thinking, reasoning, and working mathematically in developmentally appropriate lessons. This sequence extends across the series so that students have the opportunity to develop their understanding of algebra over a number of years.
Described over two pages, the sequenced algebra activities feature clear step-by-step instructions for teaching and for reflection.
The left-hand pages describe the lessons, provide teachers with specific questions that they can ask students, and gives examples of student responses.
The right hand pages supply educators with a reproducible blackline master to accompany the lesson.
