Description

I love teaching algebra! This video looks at introducing the language of algebra. All those stupid terms made up by Barry. Pronumeral, variable, constant, expression, equation, coefficient, sum, product, quotient, difference and so much more. I love to use a story which includes kissing, prison guards and bunk beds to show that algebra isn't that hard! It can be funny and fun. Worked examples will help you understand what I mean ... and the difference in my teaching!
