Task Name : Factorising Alegbra Game | Task Level : J (Year 9) | ||
Semester : 1 | Topic : Introducing Algebra | Curriculum Strand : Patterns and Algebra | |
Web Address : http://maths.crusoecollege.vic.edu.au/paJ | |||
Equipment Needed :Factorising Algebra Game board; algebra dice; counters. | |||
Curriculum outcome : Factorise algebraic expressions by taking out a common algebraic factor (VCMNA329) | |||
Task description : The object of the game is to make a line of six counters, vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Players take turn in rolling the two dice, and use the number as a coefficient and the algebra dice as the pronumeral. e.g if you roll a2 and a 4, you have made 4a2. If what you have rolled is a factor of an expression on the board (but not if it is identical to the expression on the board), you may place a counter down. If not, the turn is missed. Each player takes turns until a player makes a line of six. |
