Algebra Thinking: Crack the Code With Puzzles! (Flexible Class)
Mrs. Kennedy (M.Ed.)
In this introductory math reasoning class, students will solve math puzzles in order to crack codes and make their own puzzle in the same style.
US Grade 6
Looking to build your learner's mathematical reasoning skills, develop algebraic thinking, and critical thinking skills? This class will help you do that! What happens in this class? Students solve 3 mini puzzles each week in order to break a code and reveal a corny joke or an inspiring quote. I'll present the puzzles and provide videos in which I walk students step-by-step through the solving process. Students will have the opportunity to complete the puzzles on their own before viewing...
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Attend to precision.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
We will use Crypto Mind Benders puzzles. Students do not need to purchase them. I have a license to use and permission for use on Outschool. My teaching videos may be presented directly on the Outschool platform or may be housed, unlisted, on YouTube, depending on the size of the video (because Outschool doesn't have the capacity for larger videos)...no worrries, either way, you'll see the video in the Outschool classroom. Students will not have to open YouTube to view any content; the links pop up on the Outschool classroom page.
