Hands-on algebra!: ready-to-use games & activities for grades 7-12
Center for Applied Research in Education, May 29, 1998 - Education - 618 pages
Lay a solid foundation of algebra proficiency with over 155 hands-on games and activities. To complement the natural process of learning, each activity builds on the previous one-- from concrete to pictorial to abstract. Dr. Thompson's unique three-step approach encourages students to first recognize patterns; then use diagrams, tables, and graphs to illustrate algebraic concepts; and finally, apply what they've learned through cooperative games, puzzles, problems, and activities using a graphic calculator and computer. You'll find each activity has complete teacher directions, lists of materials needed, and helpful examples for discussion, homework, and quizzes. Most activities include time-saving reproducible worksheets for use with individual students, small groups, or the entire class. This ready-to-use resource contains materials sufficient for a two-semester course in Algebra I and can be adapted for advanced students as well as students with dyslexia.

My sister told me about this book and how good it was for her son. The BIG issue is that it is really for a classroom type setting where the teacher already has the manipulatives to put into use. I have yet to do anything with my daughter because i just can't assemble the extras to show her how it works. ...
Review: Hands-on Algebra! Ready-to-Use Games & Activities for Grades 7-12User Review - Christianbook.com
Wow, this is a monster of a book. The author has some unique hands on methods for teaching Algebra, but they really take some reading and thinking through on the teacher's part. You would expect with over 600 pages that every concept in algebra would be broken down into a hands on format. But, this is not so. If you have a hands on child who already thinks outside the box, these methods can help you with your normal curriculum, but this is not a full curriculum to cover all of Algebra. On the upside, the Algebra tiles could be used for many of the activities, but you'll need more than one set, or the author has provided black line masters in the back for her activities. I could see this being helpful, but for the average person, who's not a math major, combining a Bob Jones Text book with some Didax resources and as well as a book called Teach Yourself Algebra Visually, is probably a better combination. This text is not very easy to use, which is a bummer, the title and write up give an impression that it is quick and easy.
