Introduction
Let's think together about ways to build students' understanding of algebraic concepts. Together let's explore, reflect, discuss, and revise.

Orienting Questions
What are the various forms of algebraic reasoning?
What helps students to develop these as much as they can?
What are some of the key hurdles or difficult transitions for students to make?
How can online tools help?
