Pre-Algebra Project

This classic pack is now available as a PDF within Adobe Digital Editions.

The contents describe it well: 

Number Mappings:
1. Number Machines
2. Further Mappings
Machine Programming is introduced using the convention of the number machine and this provides an initial approach to the use of algebraic notation. Book 2 introduces graphs through the concept of linear mappings.

Operations:
1. Flags
2. Patterns and Notations
An easy introduction to basic numerical operations and their inverses leading on to simple algebra.

Number Patterns:
1. Single Mappings
2. Further Mappings
These booklets provide simple geometrical situations from which pupils derive numerical mappings ·and express them using algebraic notation.
