Welcome to maths300 The Game of SKUNK Write the following questions on the chalkboard or overhead: I might make more money if I was in business for myself; should I quit my job? An earthquake might destroy my house; should I buy insurance? My mathematics teacher might collect homework today; should I do it? Ask students to share their responses to each of these scenarios. Ask students why their responses may be different from their classmates. Every day each of us must make choices like those described above. Making the connection between choice and chance is basic to understanding the significance and usefulness of mathematical probability. The game of SKUNK presents middle-grade students with an experience that clearly involves both choice and chance. The Game of SKUNK To start the game each player makes a score sheet like this: Each letter of SKUNK represents a different round of the game; play begins with the "S" column and continue through the "K" column. At the beginning of each round, every player stands. Reference

Algebra Tutorials A brief explanationEven people who know how to deal with fractions actually prefer not to. Equations and inequalities are great when it comes to fractions because there is a way to get rid of them. This tutorial shows you how. Eliminating FractionsThe steps for eliminating fractions are: Okay, so step 2 makes no sense yet. Step-by-Step ExamplesEXAMPLE: What did we just do? EXAMPLE: Sometimes it's confusing if we're not working with like things. EXAMPLE:TIPThe most common mistake in this process is when students only multiply the left side of the equation by the common denominator. ONLINE PRACTICENone.

Algebra 1 Online! Henrico County Public Schools Welcome to the wonderful world of Algebra 1 Online! This course contains both content that reviews or extends concepts and skills learned in previous grades and new, more abstract concepts in algebra. Students will gain proficiency in computation with rational numbers (positive and negative fractions, positive and negative decimals, whole numbers, and integers) and algebraic properties. New concepts include solving two-step equations and inequalities, graphing linear equations, simplifying algebraic expressions with exponents, i.e. monomials and polynomials, factoring, solving systems of equations, and using matrices to organize and interpret data. Students will be actively engaged using concrete and virtual materials and appropriate technologies such as graphing calculators and computer software. Mathematics has its own language, and the acquisition of specialized vocabulary and language patterns is crucial to a student’s understanding and appreciation of the subject.

I feel that www.ixl.com is simply the BEST online mathematics resource that I have found. I subscribe to it for my 5 year old and my 11 year old and they are both functioning 2-3 grade levels ahead of their current, standard grade levels. I highly recommend it for classroom use for grades 4th through 8th and for use with your own children to accelerate and/or maintain their math skills. by drsinasoul May 26
