Notes from Janice’s Desk

I taught 8th grade math on a military base in Germany. The school was under construction, which gave me lots of supplies for math experiments. Yes, I said math experiments!! In fact, I used many science experiments to teach math. For example, when studying algebra unknowns, I borrowed a saw horse and a long board from the workmen. My students were shocked, but excited when they discovered that they would be see-sawing during class. Well, actually they were to sit on the board so that the board was horizontally balanced. For details on the application of a balanced see-saw and algebra, see **ALGEBRA EQUATIONS
