How Can They Do Algebra If They Don’t Know Arithmetic? *Virtual Workshop*
November 18 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm
The transition from arithmetic to algebra during the middle grades is a make-or-break time for students’ mathematical futures. But how can we ensure that all middle schoolers learn middle-grades algebra, when many students have significant unfinished learning of arithmetic?
In this workshop led by Dr. Jason Zimba, a Founding Partner of Student Achievement Partners and lead author of the mathematics standards, we’ll learn ideas and techniques for keeping students on track with middle-grades math. Participants will work together on classroom tasks, identify common student misunderstandings, and share insights with colleagues.
- Learn ideas and techniques that teachers can use to help middle-grades students who have significant amounts of unfinished learning in arithmetic.
- Recognize the assets that students bring to the middle grades from their study of arithmetic in grades K-5.
- Work together on classroom tasks to gain increased understanding of standards and student learning in middle-grades algebra.
- Gain detailed understanding of the importance of middle-grades algebra to all students’ mathematical futures.
