*The Algebra Lab: High School* (written in 1990, available below) has many great lessons, some of them available nowhere else, and offers a good introduction to the Lab Gear for teachers. Much of it is merged into the textbook *Algebra: Themes, Tools, Concepts*.

This book is not as easy to use with students as the *Algebra Lab Gear* books from Didax. Still, it contains many activities I recommend for classroom use. In particular, check out the Explorations. (See pp. ix-x in the front matter for an overview and index of those.)
