Using Technology and Problem Solving to Build Algebraic Reasoning

Teachers will explore how technology can help students build algebraic reasoning as they model and solve contextualized problems using a variety of representations, including graphs, tables, equations, and words.

[Note: We originally developed and offered this workshop under the Leadership Development for Technology Integration: Developing an Effective NSDL Teacher Workshop Model grant.]

This is a community-facilitated workshop. It is not a course and, therefore, no instructor will be present. A Math Forum facilitator monitors the workshop to respond to technical questions. We rely on a critical mass of participation from those who have registered so that there are active discussions resulting in a successful workshop experience for everyone.


  • use online collaborative learning tools and the extensive resources and experience of the Math Forum community
  • experience the flexibility of anytime, anywhere online learning
  • become accustomed to an online professional development environment

Continuing Education Credits: Participants who successfully complete the workshop may request 1.5 Continuing Education credits (fifteen contact hours) from Drexel University for a fee of $25 to cover administrative costs. Note: It is always best for you to check with your Local Education Agency regarding whether the CEUs will be accepted/recognized.

To successfully complete the workshop participants will:

  • spend 2-3 hours a week on the online tasks
  • participate in each of the online discussions
  • complete all six weeks of the workshop
  • submit responses to each of the Technology Problems of the Week (tPoWs) used in this workshop

When: No sessions are currently scheduled.

Please email me with any questions.
