Algebra Games Offer a Fun Approach to Prepare ELLs and EOs for Final Examinations

With final examinations only a few weeks away, teachers are trying their best to liven up review sessions so that students will be in a stronger position to take and do well in their examinations.  So how does a teacher liven up the review process in algebra, a subject that many ELLs struggle in (due to language and not intellectual ability)? Games with academic objectives address this goal with ease. 

ALGEBRA GAMES offers a fairly wide range of non-traditional approaches to tackling math.  The activities offered could be done with a partner, in a small structured cooperative group, or individually.  As students attempt to win the game or solve the puzzle, they will be honing their algebra skills without knowing it:)
