Math Foundations: Solving Equations

July 7 @ 8:30 am - July 8 @ 11:30 am

A virtual mini course exploring important understandings students need to have around solving equations.

After a year full of stops and starts, it has become clear that flexibility is more important than ever when it comes to teaching and learning. The same is true for professional learning, which is why we have reimagined our Summer Institutes to offer our most customizable summer courses ever.

This summer we are going back to basics with seven new mini courses designed to ground you in the most important foundational math concepts. Each course will explore a major math content area where students struggle most, while empowering you with the tools and confidence you need to make informed decisions in your math classroom.

Comprised of just two virtual half days, these mini courses are designed to be a manageable way to engage in meaningful math learning from anywhere. Choose the courses that work best for you and get ready to refresh your math content knowledge without changing your summer plans.

Math Foundations: Solving Equations

Solving Equations: Understanding equality is a core idea in Algebra. Participants will examine ways students can represent their mathematical reasoning through physical, visual, symbolic, verbal, and contextual representations for creating and solving equations. Connections between tape diagrams, hanger diagrams, and symbolic reasoning will be emphasized, building to systems of equations.
