Subject: looking for meaningful algebra

The NSF-sponsored standards-based middle school mathematics curriculum
have excellent units in algebra.  For example, Mathematics in Context
has a unit called "Comparing Quantities which is exploring equations
with 2 & 3 unknowns through concrete applications.  Connected
Mathematics Project has units on linear algebra and variables and
patterns where students explore a number of applications.  While these
are full curricula, in looking at these units, one can find excellent
investigations.  They have web sites that can be accessed through the
Showme Center (www.showmecenter.missouri.edu).
