Expressions, equations, and inequalities are critical concepts for students transitioning from Elementary arithmetic to High School mathematics. Students progress from the world of concrete representations to abstract thinking, bringing to bear a variety of math trajectories. Workshop participants will explore strategies for building relevance, excitement, and understanding through the use of manipulatives, engaging tasks, and a sound understanding of student learning trajectories.
Come join us in developing a deep understanding of expressions, equations, and (in)equality in middle school mathematics.
(Activities will be different from last year’s workshops, so teachers who attended last year should still consider attending this year’s workshop.)
NOTE: Participants will be expected to take a task back to their classrooms, collect and analyze student work, and share their reflections with the CRR.
***Teachers from Arizona schools are invited to apply at no cost. Others may register for $60.
