From: Jenny Bay <jbay@ksu.edu> To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2000051216:20:14 Subject: looking for meaningful algebra The NSFsponsored standardsbased 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).
