**********I KNOW THIS LOOKS LIKE A LOT OF WORK, HOWEVER THE ONLY THING THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE IS THE TASK. I COULDN’T JUST POST THAT PART*****************
This module deals with something that’s integral to keeping you a reasonable manipulator of mathematics: algebra!
The whole idea of today is to “flesh out” your basic algebra skills so that you will be comfortable as we move forward into more rigorous tasks. We’ll focus on some basic solving as well as graphing, so be ready to take on algebra this week!
Investigate algebra foundations with the Khan Tutorials. These are pre-algebra reviews just to get you thinking.
Use the Algebra Handout to check your understanding.
Work through the Khan tutorial on Coordinate Plane Introduction.
Now find someone to play Battleship with you. If you have the board game at home you can use that or use this free online version. Keep track of your moves and your guesses. After several rounds of the game, write out how you used concepts of algebra and especially coordinate planes to play the game.
