How it Works
Algebra has been brought into the primary school grades by the Australian Maths Curriculum but many year 6 and 7 teachers have never been expected to teach algebra before. Help is at hand. The Card Game is a fun way of introducing students to:
- making a table of values
- creating algebraic expressions
- using the language of algebraic thinking
As with many of our other software packages the game opens with a simple to manage teacher set-up screen allowing the game to be set to the needs of the students.
In the classroom
The supporting mental routines, lesson plans and investigations enable a teacher to introduce students to algebra meaningfully and with fun as they develop deep understanding of the underlying ideas.
The Card Game is a Visual Basic program that runs on a PC. It is compatible with every type of IWB.
