Hands-on Trigonometry Proofs

7-12

This set contains four separate “proofs” of trigonometry relations, with examples of a Pythagorean identity, a sum formula, a double-angle formula, and two sum-to-product formulas. Demonstation of each relation is accomplished by physically rearranging the pieces to establish equalities of areas or lengths. These are not rigorous mathematical proofs, but rather visual common-sense proofs. As such, they help make these abstract relationships real and believable. By actually handling the pieces, students engage their minds to a greater degree than they would by merely looking at the proofs on paper.

The colour instructions describe how each proof is demonstrated, and four reproducible worksheets reinforce the material. Contains 20 magnetic foam pieces.

The 12 pieces can be used to build spatial sense, develop geometrical visualization, proportional reasoning, and allow students to create conceptual models. Research says that problem solving activities increase when students gain spatial reasoning skills.

Pentominoes with Clear Set

Pentominoes are colourful plastic shapes composed of 5 squares each, all of which must share at least one side. Contains 18 sets, bucket, teacher’s guide

(22 pages), and overhead set.

The Next Generation of Pattern Blocks

(Deci-Blocks™)

The Deci-Blocks™ combined with the

Pattern Blocks can be utilized to represent all the Fractions that are needed. This is clearly one of the strengths of the

Deci-Blocks™.

Examples of Mathematical topics when working with Deci-Blocks™ and Pattern Blocks:

• Modeling Fraction Relationships

• Solving Algebraic Equations and Balance Scales

• Balance Equations and Augmented Matrices

• Systems of Equations from a Geometric Perspective

• Polygon Congruencies

• Transformations

• Angle Measurements

• Probability Applications

We recommend that students have access to both regular pattern blocks and Deci-Blocks™ when working with our Deci-Blocks™ set as listed on page 24.

Four-Pan Algebra Balance

9-12

Unlike any other balance, this one makes it possible to physically show that -1 < 0. Weights placed on the outer pans represent negative integers and those placed in the inner pans represent positive integers. When you place a weight in each pan on one side of the centre post, the balance remains level as (-1) + (+1) = 0. Ideal for small group work, this sturdy 42.5 cm balance comes with four plastic pans, four canisters, a set of plastic weights, and a teacher’s booklet.

Alge-Tiles™

The lengths of the rectangular xtile and ytile are not an integral number of 1tiles. Similarly, the bases and heights of the x2tile, the y2tile, and the xytile are not an integral number of 1tiles. This is not a construction defect, but is done deliberately to guarantee uniqueness when students use the tiles for factoring. Have the students discover this feature before you begin the algebra unit.

• Ratios

• Integers

• Polynomials

Mathematical Learning Objects

Why use

The Algebra Game?

Because everyone who plays wins! Here’s how students and educators alike will benefit from The Algebra Game:

Students will...

4

recognize connections between different card features

4

understand how cards relate and write about those relationships

4

build conjectures to support observations

4

improve problem-solving skills

4

develop proficiency in recognizing algebraic equations

Teachers and tutors will...

4

encourage cooperative learning

4

gain additional ways to assess student achievement

4

save time with ready-to-go lessons and worksheets

4

be able to accommodate different learning styles

4

help students actively build knowledge with understanding

Quadratic Equations Card Set

The quadratic formula is demystified as students piece together and match up the various parts – vertex, axis of symmetry, discriminant and quadratic formula. The goal is to match these cards to the factor, root, point pair, and graph cards to discover the connections to the quadratic equation.

All decks have a sampling of non-function parabolas and include several parabolas that are in translated positions. Contains 8 decks of 60 cards each, including 12 graphs with 6 matching components for each graph, plus a

60-page teacher manual.

205816 - $62.25

Linear Graphs Card Set

Students can make sense of linear equations by matching slope and y-intercept cards. They will quickly grasp the interconnections between cards and how the distinct parts – graphs, point, pair, slope, and y intercept – fit together with equations.

All decks used together provide a greater variety of parallel and perpendicular line pairs for extra practice or added challenge. Contains 5 decks of 60 cards each, including 12 graphs with 5 matching components for each graph, plus a 60-page teacher manual.

204028 - $62.25

Trig Functions Card Set

All three trig functions – sine, cosine and tangent – and their reciprocals have matching graphs, point pairs, and equations. Clues about a graph’s amplitude and period are imbedded in equations so students learn how the equation effects the related graph. Contains 4 decks of 60 cards each, including 12 graphs with 5 matching components for each graph, plus a 64page teacher manual.

205820 - $62.25

32

Conic Sections Card Set

By using all of the conic section decks together, students become proficient at recognizing conic equation characteristics for circles, parabolas, ellipses and hyper-bolas. When each deck is used separately, Algebra Game players can study equation and graph characteristics – including foci, eccentricity, point pair, and standard form rotation

– in greater depth. All of the decks have three examples of conic equations with translated origins.

Contains 5 decks of 60 cards each, including 12 graphs with 5 matching components for each graph, plus a 70-page teacher manual.

205818 - $62.25

Solving With Pythagoras Set

Use the Solving With Pythagoras card decks and teacher manual and have your students making relational decisions about triangles within minutes!

Deck of Cards

Students classify and compare triangles cards to learn about side and angle relationships.

There are 8 sets of 6 similar right triangles and 8 more cards have triangles with variables

(total of 64 cards). Students can figure out the value of x that would make the triangle similar to one of the other sets. Five cards are NOT triangles and 3 triangles are not right triangles.

The discussions initiated by these cards significantly increase retention.

Teacher Manual

The activities support high school topics and go with any textbook lessons for similarity proportions, the Pythagorean Theorem, trig ratios, triangles in regular polygons, plus area and perimeter. Blank activity card templates and mats let teachers write their own directions for lessons. 62 pages.
