  • Refreshing my Algebra Knowledge – any bright ideas?

    Posted by Kelly Hayden on May 20, 2020 at 8:40 pm

    Hi Everyone! I am in my first year of teaching 7th grade math and 7th grade pre-algebra. Next year, I will be looping up with my students so I will be teaching 8th grade math and algebra. My biggest challenge is digesting the material before I teach it. I also teach science — so my prep time is busy! I was successfully using Open Up Math Resources before we transitioned to remote learning — and I was really liking this resource.

    I am interested to see if anyone has any suggestions on how to best brush up on Algebra before I teach this subject next year. I know there’s Kahn Academy and I could potentially just work through the Algebra book — but I guess I wanted to hear from others if they’ve found successful ways of refreshing their math content if they feel a bit rusty.

    I love listening to the math moments that matter podcast, and I’m excited to check out this cool resource hub. Thanks for any thoughts or ideas you may have.

    @kelly-hayden Welcome! Listening to the podcast is a great way to keep up with strategies and thinking! We’re glad you’re enjoying.

    I’d recommend reading Nix the Tricks to your task list to help with algebra: It’s a great resource to help understand math at the same time as teaching it.
