      VARNELLE'S PRIMARY MATH - INTRODUCTION TO ALGEBRA

            http://mathforum.org/varnelle/kalg.html

  A unit by Varnelle Moore, designed to guide young children
  (K-2) through an introduction to algebra. Children learn to
  sort, classify, and order attribute blocks by size, number,
  and other properties.

    - What's My Attribute?
    - What's Next?
    - Patterns
    - Algebra Ideas
    - Next in Line

  Each lesson includes an interactive, manipulative-based
  project, an activity incorporating technology, paper/pencil
  practice, and literature connections. The Java applet
  Attribute Blocks was written by Joel Duffin at Utah State
  University and tailored specifically for this unit.

  mathematics programs.

  The sessions include:

    - From Number Relationships to Basic Facts: Addition and
        Subtraction in the Primary Grades
    - Encouraging Mathematical Thinkers: The Basics and More
    - Multiplication: Helping Children with Basic Facts
    - Fractions in Grades 3 through 6: Developing
        Understanding Over Time
    - How to Help Your Child with Math at Home

  Elias Saab, Professor of Mathematics at the University of
  Missouri at Columbia, is in the process of establishing
  several online mathematics practice, learning and evaluation
  drills for college bound students.

  This site has online testing and evaluation components for

    - College Algebra Readiness
    - Geometry
    - Trigonometry
    - Calculus Readiness

  The tests provide immediate feedback to correct and
  incorrect answers, and detailed solutions for all the
  problems. If you take the same multiple-choice or
  single-answer test more than once, you may vary the
  parameters of its questions, getting different versions of
  the same problems as before. Students can try two or more
  drills to try to improve their score. Such evaluation
  provides a tool for schools and teachers to assess their
  students' readiness in mathematics before coming to college.
