I've kind of done that a little with proofs, though not terribly explicitly, and without really utilizing the power of "false" as well as I think I could have. <br /><br />Now, enough with the math blogging and back to the Christmas cookies!Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1075593398139537131.post-83579412735246168372010-12-23T20:40:31.194-08:002010-12-23T20:40:31.194-08:002 + 3 = x is definitely, for sure, an algebra equa...2 + 3 = x is definitely, for sure, an algebra equation. The x stands for some number, and depending on what number you use, it may be true or false. If x is 5, the equation is true, otherwise it is false.<br /><br />I think the only fallacy here is trying to make a distinction between "an equation" and "an algebra equation". They have the same characteristics, except that once variables are included there is a new category of sentence: true, false, and open. An open sentence is true or false depending on the values of its variables. And, of course, equations with variables can be universally true or false:<br /><br />x + y = y + x<br />2x + 3 = 2x + 1<br /><br />Cool stuff for 6th graders to see as they move forward. They may not be doing "algebra" but they are certainly doing the types of thinking associated with algebra, even reasoning about systems and extensions.Bowen Kerinshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06715818962840193625noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1075593398139537131.post-7754625692091115112010-12-22T08:40:55.865-08:002010-12-22T08:40:55.865-08:00It would be great if your students got to algebra ...It would be great if your students got to algebra with the idea that the equals sign describes a relationship :-) <br /> http://www.ncsall.net/fileadmin/resources/fob/2008/fob_9a.pdf has some neat ideas for talking about it in the "part whole" relationship article at the beginning.SiouxGeonzhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14852040976080951492noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1075593398139537131.post-75042724419500230542010-12-20T21:06:09.413-08:002010-12-20T21:06:09.413-08:00Why you should use Twitter:

Rhetorical, Syncopated and symbolic. I show my 7th graders examples of all three, then I translate a simple rhetorical sentence through the other two. <br /><br />The rest of the year, we use these at terms to describe what stage we are in with some work and we talk all year about translating from one form or another. <br /><br />"3+?=7" I frequently use shapes like hearts or clovers or whatever instead of an alpha variable. To use a more syncopated form of algebra I will often but the word "what" or "something" or "the unknown" where you have put a question mark. I want my students to have a better feel for the rich texture of the algebraic variable.Jim Ellishttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15587063208330834442noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1075593398139537131.post-3800452409611958922010-12-06T16:27:54.658-08:002010-12-06T16:27:54.658-08:00Avery, This is fantastic!
