November 1, 2012## 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.

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
