Tennessee Curriculum Standards
Algebra:
The student will understand and generalize patterns as they represent and analyze quantitative relationships and change in a variety of contexts and problems using graphs, tables, and equations.
 Calculating...
Lesson  (...)
Lesson: Shows students that number patterns exist in the Pascal's Triangle, and reinforces student's ability to identify patterns.

Lesson: Students practice arithmetic skills. Can be tailored for practice of all types of single operation arithmetic ranging from simple addition to operations with integers and decimals.

Lesson: Students learn to identify a variety of patterns using sequences and tessellations.

Lesson: Introduction to various algorithms for solving single-variable, linear equations.

Activity  (...)
Activity: Decode encrypted messages to determine the form for an affine cipher, and practice your reasoning and arithmetic skills. Input your guesses for the multiplier and constant. Caesar Cipher III is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: This activity helps you understand how to balance an equation. You input the term and the operation. The activity uses that term and operates on both sides of the equation. It then displays the resulting equation. Equation Solver is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Students can create graphs of functions entered as algebraic expressions -- similar to a graphing calculator.

Activity: Create graphs of functions and sets of ordered pairs on the same coordinate plane. This is like a graphing calculator with advanced viewing options.

Activity: This applet allows the user to make observations about the relationship between speed and position and how both of these are affected by initial velocity and the incline on which the biker is traveling.

Activity: Plot ordered pairs on the graph, and they will be connected in the order that they are input. This enables you to decide how the pairs should be connected, rather than having the computer connect them from left to right.

Activity: Students investigate linear functions with positive slopes by trying to guess the slope and intercept from inputs and outputs. Positive Linear Function Machine is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.
