I rarely talk about the books I’ve written on this blog, but the Community Site for my new book, Algebra Activities, just launched and I think it’s pretty cool. Also, I now have an Amazon.com author page. Yay!
The basic philosophy for the book is to provide easy-to-use classroom activities to instructors so that they can easily replace lecturing time with more active learning. The book also provides instruction tips and lesson plans so that any algebra instructor, especially new ones, can have a “mentor” to guide them and help them reflect on how students learn.
If you go to the Samples section of the Community Site, you can print and use some of the activities from the book in your classes. You can also see some of the fantastic new algebra cartoons that were commissioned as part of this project.
