Algebraic Representation Matching
At the heart of Algebraic reasoning is developing an understanding of and the relationships among variables. Knowing how variable relationships are shown and connected in various representations (word, tables, graphs, equations) is a valuable skill. These matching exercises offer an opportunity to explore and discuss the connection across representations. Students can look for how the multiple representations express similar reasoning around the variables. The three matching exercises are appropriate for all CMP students in Grade 6 – 8.
