I'm going into a school tomorrow an dhad a plan to teach the kids (10-11) about algebra in a different weay to they are used to. I.e. give them a deeper understanding of what is going on - to try and liven things up a bit. For example, most children can give a reasonable definition of what x means in a mathematical concept. Of course, I do not want thme to spurt out that it is the dependant variable - but I would like them to be able say, well if your just giving me x then x can be any number in the whole universe!

anyway, I was wondering what ideas you guys had - doesn't have to be algebra based - I have an hour with them and want to have an impact.
