Clarke LEARNING MATH: PATTERNS, FUNCTIONS, AND ALGEBRA The Annenberg/CPB Channel http://www.learner.org/resources/resource.html?uid=140 Beginning January 22, the Annenberg/CPB Channel will broadcast the first of five video and Web-based mathematics courses for elementary and middle school teachers. This new ten-part professional development course in mathematics will explore the "big ideas" in algebraic thinking, such as - finding, describing, and using patterns - using functions to make predictions - understanding linearity and proportional reasoning - understanding non-linear functions - understanding and exploring algebraic structure The concluding case studies will show classroom applications of what has been learned. The course consists of 10 two-and-a-half hour sessions, each with a half-hour of video programming, problem-solving activities available in print and on the Web, and class discussions. The deadline for Spring registration is December 31, 2001.
