## Which Number Doesn’t Belong? Math Challenge

I love providing my kids with unique math challenges. Sometimes this means logic puzzles, sometimes mental math challenges, and sometimes it means applying math to their current interests. I want to encourage a love for the beauty of math, as well as challenge them to think deeply about what they're learning. I also want to help them see that mistakes are a necessary part of math learning. But I also want to show them that math is not always as Keep Reading...

## Algebra Essentials Resource Bundle

Before I began homeschooling my children, I was a classroom teacher. I taught in a variety of contexts and grade levels, but I always taught Algebra. Sometimes it was remedial Algebra sometimes College Algebra, and everything in between. And I loved it! But it seemed no matter what level of Algebra I was teaching, there were certain concepts that challenged kids. And these concepts were ones that I had to review or reteach, even when I was Keep Reading...

## Equivalent Expressions Activity {FREE}

Understanding how to work with expressions involving variables can be such a huge leap for kids. On more than one occasion, I've had students tell me, "I was great at math until it started to involve letters. What's up with that??" What I constantly tried to convey to my students was that a variable is still just a number. When you're feeling stuck, replace it with a number to try and figure out what's going on. So if your students are feeling Keep Reading...

## 8 Engaging Early Algebra Lessons (FREE)

I love Algebra. It's true, I do! I don't even mind long, tedious calculations. I love the challenge of correctly "undoing" an equation to find the solution. I love knowing I can check my answer. I love the feeling of satisfaction when I correctly solve it. This is why I spent most of my time in the classroom as an Algebra teacher. In the beginning, however, students often get hung up on some of those early foundations, making the rest of their Keep Reading...

## Silver Dollar Diner: FREE Money Math Pack

One of the last things I did with my kids before we officially began our summer break was review money. This was my son's first exposure, so I taught him each of the coins and their denomination, and began to teach him how to add coins (using some of the books in this post and play money). For my daughter, this meant putting her knowledge of money values to work. To help her practice finding the total, and work through real life examples, I Keep Reading...
