An Integrated, interdisciplinary study of number sense and algebraic expressions.
Students will develop their number sense, use data collection and analysis, and use algebraic methods to explore relationships involving numbers within a variety of of real-world problem solving situations.
This unit provides the necessary introduction and practice to prepare students for the successful study of algebra. Relevant number rules and properties help students realize the organization and structure of algebra. Students learn to explore problems by asking and answering questions about the real-world situation. Crucial skills in solving equations and inequalities are addressed.
