Using Technology and Problem Solving to Build Algebraic Reasoning

CMC-South, November 2-3, 2007
Suzanne Alejandre, the Math Forum @ Drexel

In the Math Forum's Online Algebraic Reasoning Workshop we investigate some mathematics topics common to middle school curricula within the theme of algebraic reasoning. In this context participants explore the Math Tools digital library and several software tools that contribute in some way to mathematical understanding, problem solving, reflection and discussion.

Since January 7, 2007, we have completed thirteen sections (six workshops) of the workshop. Four additional workshops are scheduled starting January 14, 2008 with applications open on December 24, 2007.
