This is an exciting lesson for middle school math students in which they learn to translate between algebraic expressions written in word form to algebraic expressions written with mathematical symbols. The theme of the lesson is World War II and the role the Navajo Indians played in the war effort. Students train to become better translators and increase in rank from "Private", to "Colonel", and lastly to "General".
