Paving a Way to Algebraic Word problems Using a Nonalgebraic Route

  • Paving a Way to Algebraic Word problems Using a Nonalgebraic Route

    Miriam Amit, Bella Klass-Tsirulnikov
    Describes three lessons used in seventh and eighth grades that are built around a poem, a short story, and a young adult novel in a way to connect important mathematical ideas with the ideas presented in the literature. In addition to teaching meaningful reading, the lessons provide opportunities for students to apply proportional reasoning skills, explore linear relationships, calculate a unit rate, and find the relationship between the volume of a cylinder and a cone.
