At LearnBop we know that sometimes taking math concepts from the page to the real world is hard. Students often ask, “When will I ever use this in ‘real life?’”

At LearnBop, we want to help students stay interested and engaged in math. That's why we started this weekly series that outlines how problems or patterns emerge “in real life.” In our second edition we will go over CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.1 and  CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.2, covering ratios, ratio language, and ratio relationships (reduction to unit rates).

Moving on from Pre-Algebra to Algebra I can be just as intimidating as it is exciting.

While folks in support of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) don't advocate a reliance on worksheets, working through problem sets can be good practice for demonstrating Algebra I procedural fluency or skill in carrying out procedures flexibly, accurately, efficiently and appropriately.

While classroom investigations and teaching methods that develop a conceptual understanding of Algebra I core concepts are preferred, if you're looking to download Algebra worksheets for demonstrating procedural fluency,  to better understand how problem sets look, or to use as a supplement in your classroom, then below are five of the more comprehensive resources we could find for quick downloads. We can't vouch for quality but have tested each link to ensure there are a number of different aspects of Algebra I covered amongst the five sites, topics like linear equations, sequences, functions, and polynomials.
