Hellooooo Mathspiggies,……………………………………..

……………………………………………………………………………….

Meet my friend Algee. We’re going to do some very  tricky piggy maths. Some kids in year 6 or 7 get scared by the word a-l-g-b-r-a. Don’t say it out loud. Once letters arrive with numbers they tune out.

…………………………………………………………………………………

BUT they can learn any number of rules to play video games. So what’s up?  We are going to play ALGEE BAA!!!!

………………………………………………………………………………….

Sheep make sense to kids. Pictures make sense to kids. We can work out how many baa’s Algee baa’s.

………………………………………………………………………………….

Algee baa looks like kindergarten maths.

So, like, easy. I’m a pig, I tell you it is e-a-s-y. And that’s the point, mathspiggies. They’ll be doing Algee baa before they know it.

………………………………………………………………………………..

Later, you can tell them they are experts in that other word. First of all, do the maths with Algee.

………………………………………………………………………………….

 

This week you can try:

*Learn the rules of Algee baa  

* Do Algee baa exercises  

* Learn Advanced Algee baa I  

* Do some Advanced Algee baa I exercises  

* Learn Advanced Algee baa II  

* Don’ t forget our Baa Graph.

…………………………………………………………………………………….

Hoo Roo………………………………………………………………………..

  1. I love your Algee baas! They are kerry cue (very cute)! I’ll let you know how my kids take to them. Alas some of my year 10’s still think that when x = 5, 3x = 35

    • Hey Jeff,

      Great to hear from you. Even though you have not been blogging frantically of late, I can tell you that you still have lots of fans. I get traffic from Webmaths all the time. And your comments re: how some of your kids get soooo confused with algebra is really relevant. I hope Algee helps. Let me know.

      Cheers
