Making the Transition from Arithmetic to Algebra!Recognizing Equivalent Algebraic Expressions. |

These worksheets are based on the ideas (from the NCTM) that many students have difficulty making the transition from elementary school mathematics to middle school algebra. A typical question a student may ask is,

Special thanks to Joseph G. R. Martinez, currently a faculty member at the University of New Mexico, for letting us use his ideas in building this section.
