In this introduction to algebraic concepts, students aged 10-13 years explore the idea of algebra as a ‘balancing act’ using dice and coloured tiles.

When given the opportunity to ‘play’ with big mathematical ideas, students naturally acquire the algebra basics:

  • using symbols to denote mathematical functions;
  • using a variable (n) to represent an unknown; and
  • writing and solving simultaneous equations.

Dice activities for algebra is intended to:

  • construct a bridge for students to transition from thinking arithmetically to thinking algebraically
  • assist students in the use of letters to represent unknowns and variables
  • apply deductive and inductive reasoning in solving for n
  • generate rules to describe number patterns
  • increase and deepen an understanding of equivalency
