I would use it for relationships in patterns (grade 7) moving on up to linear relations and graphing them in gr. 8.
I have a hard time envisioning what middle years kids will come up with as solutions.There is one student who will still be at the repeated addition stage. Others may be ready to graph and create algebraic equations. Because my own number sense is not that great (but getting better thanks to this course!) I don’t know what to say. I would definitely ask them to use higher numbers. Such as: how many scoops are needed for the entire class?
I am still wondering when you teach algebraic equations. Does that come into play during the consolidation area of a hero’s journey?
