Day 9: Rational numbers

My focus for the year is for the students to do more problem solving, but I also want to stress algebraic thinking. Today I introduced the class to visual patterns from AIMS’ What’s Next Using Patterns to Solve Problems.

On the common core standards front, the pre-algebra students were introduced to rational numbers. After setting up set their math journals they completed a concept map, ordered rational numbers and justified their placement on their number line.
