#### Transcript of Algebrafy Project

Algebrafy Project Question #1 Simply put, “algebra-fy” helps to enhance the
way we teach mathematics to encourage algebraic
thinking in students. It teaches students how to
generalize their mathematical thinking, and
express and justify their generalizations. What does it mean to
"Algebra-Fy"? Traditional: Sally picked 9 flowers from the garden. Ben picked 17 flowers from the same garden as Sally. How many more flowers does Sally need to pick in order to have the same amount of flowers as Ben?

Algebrafied: Sally picked 11 flowers from the garden. Ben picked 17 flowers from the same garden as Sally. How many more flowers does Sally need to pick in order to have the same amount of flowers as Ben? What if Ben had picked 20 flowers? 56 flowers? 100 flowers? Come up with a rule that may help us find n flowers. Question # 2 Traditional:
There are four apple seeds in an apple, but only 3 of those seeds make a tree each. If I ate 5 apples how many trees can I plant with the seeds?

Algebrafied: There are four apple seeds in an apple, but only 3 of those seeds make a tree each. If I ate 5 apples and saved the seeds, how many trees can I plant with the seeds? What if I ate 6 apples, 7 apples, 8 apples, 100 apples, nth term apple? Question # 3 Traditional: Sally bought 8 apples from the corner market; she needs to make 3 apple pies. Each pie takes 6 apples. How many more apples does she need to get? f – 11 = # of flowers needed. 3(n) = # of trees that can be planted Algebrafied: Sally bought 8 apples from the corner market; she needs to make 3 pies. Each pie takes 6 apples. How many more apples does she need to get to make 3 pies? 10 pies? 35 pies? Find a generalization that could help us find n pies? 6(n)-8= # of apples
needed after Sally goes to the
