Summer/ Year 1- BUILDING A FOUNDATION IN ALGEBRA

Marilyn Burns’ Building a Foundation for Algebra targets grades 3-8 teachers to deepen their understanding of critical algebraic mathematical concepts, tying good pedagogy to specific algebra content strands to increase student achievement. The course will address in depth the mathematical content and instructional strategies necessary for developing students’ algebraic thinking. Participants explore what is meant by algebraic thinking and how algebraic concepts can be applied at various grade levels. Building on the instruction they are already providing in arithmetic, teachers learn through a series of problem-solving investigations how to teach algebraic concepts and skills that involve symbols, variables, multiple representations, expressions, equations, graphing, and functions. Complex tasks are incorporated and developed to provide differentiated math tasks to elementary and middle school students.

Sign up above if you want to attend the summer

session, or the last ticket if you want to be on

the list for the fall or spring.

Every qualifiying participant can receive:

3 P-Credits per year

Up to $2000 in teaching equipment, including laptops, software,
