Moving Students from Arithmetic to Algebra
...one step at a time
The Arithmetic to Algebra Course and the Differentiating Math Instruction courses have been redesigned.
We will now be offering a special section of the Differentiating Math Instruction course for teachers of grades 6 through Algebra that focuses on using rich tasks, whole group discussion, and small group instruction to move students from arithmetic to algebra.
Through analyzing student work on a rich visual patterns task, participants will learn to identify student thinking that connects arithmetic and algebraic thinking both formally and informally.
Participants will also learn how to orchestrate discussions to help students make connections between familiar arithmetic ideas and algebraic concepts.
Finally, participants will learn tips and techniques for using flexible small group instruction to meet students where they are.
