Making Algebra fun?! Yes, my intention is to make algebra more enticing for the students to become curious about algebra. I attended a workshop recently that helped me "see the light" on how to introduce the concept of a variable that made complete sense out of something the kids seem to struggle with. I teach a class of 28 third grade students who come from a very low socio-economic background. I teach in the same community that I grew up in. I remember in college people felt "sorry" for me when I told them where I was from. I was floored! I don't want these kids to feel inferior because of the "stereotype" that exists about the place they come from.
