Students who develop the ability to think and reason algebraically typically have successful experiences in middle school mathematics and beyond. This two-day workshop introduces research-proven strategies, activities, and assessment ideas that make a difference in the teaching and learning of “Algebraic Thinking.” Participants will work through and develop rich tasks that promote algebraic thinking while making connections among all representations. Tasks will focus on reasoning and problem solving that provide multiple entry points and a variety of solutions. Participants will leave with a variety of rich tasks and the information needed for orchestrating discourse in their classroom.
