Algebraic Thinking Workshop

Algebraic Thinking Workshop

The Algebraic Thinking Workshop will help teachers learn content and strategies to support students making sense of algebraic concepts and their applications. Success in algebra is built upon a sound understanding of algebraic concepts. This workshop is designed for teachers of grades 3‐8 who would like to enhance their students’ success in algebra by fostering the students’ algebraic thinking. We will explore activities and tools that help students transition from algorithms to algebraic thinking, express generalizations about structure and functions, build on number sense, foster symbol sense, and link multiple representations of concepts. This workshop will emphasize understanding and application of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice. The workshop will be interactive and held online via Zoom in a 4 day span with each day split into (two) 2 hour sessions. *Registrants are required to attend all 8 sessions.
