In these pairs of statements, spelling makes the difference ...

## Thinking Algebraically, Part 1

Algebra is a tool. Practice helps us learn how to use it. Here are some ways to practice Algebra in ordinary activities.

You are shopping at Penney's. The sign on a rack says, "St. Johns Bay Tops 40% Off Marked Price." Your sister looks at a top and asks, "How much is this with the discount?" You want a way to figure the sale price no matter the marked (original) price or the discount rate.

This is due to several factors, including, among other things, learning difficulties, inattention, unfamiliarity with the subject, material missed during an absence, or student playfulness.

The wrong choice among homophonic spellings may not only confuse your readers, it can make them stumble in reading your material. And it can make a poor impression when a good...

Years later, I seriously searched for other perfect right triangles. I began with a list of the squares of whole numbers and the difference between one square and the next (the "delta").

Discovery #1: The series of deltas = the series of odd numbers. I looked for deltas which are squares. Since the series of deltas is the series of odd numbers, the square...
