Algebraic Thinking (6-7)

July 9 - July 27

| Free

This 3-week course is designed to draw out high-level algebraic thinking from middle grades students. The focus is on using the 6th and 7th grade standards for expressions and equations as a vehicle to examine teacher practice and improve students’ algebraic thinking.  Specific goals and activities include the following:

  • Define algebraic thinking and reasoning through the “Habits of Mind” framework.
  • Evaluate the way teachers talk to and question students about expressions, equations, and inequalities.
  • Explore the standards for expressions and equations and the Mathematical Practices through engaging problems.
  • Apply algebraic thinking to STEM and real-world problem solving lessons.

To register for this course, go to the Teacher Learning Hub.  Registration will open on June 18, 2018 and close on July 9, 2018.
