Algebra has been brought into the primary school grades by the Australian Maths Curriculum, but many year 4 – 6 teachers have never been expected to teach algebra before. Help is at hand. The Card Game is a fun way of introducing students to:

• Pronumerals.
• 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.

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.

Decimal Value supports the teaching of the ACM Number and Place Value strand for Year 4: ACMNA083, Year 5: ACMNA121 and Year 6: ACMNA133 and ACMNA134.
