Algebraic Identity kit

487.00

AGE GROUP:

  • Suitable for student of above 13 years
  • Recommended for grade 6, 7 and 8

INSIDE THE BOX:

  • Different colours foam tiles which are labelled with letter symbol of a2, b2, ab, bc and c2

LEARNING OUTCOME:

  • Visually able to discover the algebraic identities while doing activities. Identities like (a+b)2 = a2+2ab+b2, (a-b)2 = a2- 2ab+b2, a2-b2= (a+b) (a-b) and (x+a) (x+b) = x2+(a+b) x+ab becomes easy to understand. Learns to apply algebraic identities to factorization of polynomials

Description

CHALLENGES IN LEARNING ALGEBRAIC IDENTITIES:

It’s difficult for children to understand that algebraic identities are algebraic equation which are always true for every value of variables in them. Application of this in factorization of polynomials is even for difficult to understand. There are variables and constant on both side of equation. This makes it more difficult.

WHY ALGEBRC IDENTITIES?

Activities on Algebraic identity kit makes its interesting and easy to understand. Student discover how identities are formed by re-arranging the square(a) and rectangle tiles of length (a) and breadth(b), gives a new combined shape of square. While discovering its area we get (a+b)2  with combined tiles of a2 , b2 , and 2ab. In this process student discover the first identity (a+b)2 = a2+2ab+b2.
