Grades 6-10: Bridging Arithmetic & Algebra: Improving Fluency

Type of PD: 1-Day Institute 
Institute Dates: 11/29/17
Location: M.S. 131M (02M131), 100 Hester St, New York, NY 10002
Time: 8:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (1 hour lunch break included) 

Cost: $275 per person
Who should attend: All Math Educators Grades 6-10, including Teachers, Special Education Teachers, and Coaches in the grade levels.

*This institute is also listed in the categories Number & Operations: Algebra, Secondary Institutes, & Teaching Learning Communities.

Why do seemingly good math students often hit a wall when they take algebra? They have not understood the underlying structure of number and without that they will not have access to algebra. In this institute, we will explore instructional strategies and math tasks that address this gap in understanding. Together we will examine ways of bridging arithmetic and algebra because the seamless integration of the two results in students who are mathematically proficient. We can prepare students for higher levels of mathematics while at the same time bridging gaps. This workshop will show you how.

Teachers will have the opportunity to explore:

  • Routines to support mathematical habits necessary for bridging number sense and algebraic reasoning.
  • Big ideas that are central to the study of algebra (and arithmetic), including equivalence, properties, proportionality, and the multiple meanings a variable can have.
  • Giving a range of learners access to the capacity to represent mathematical situations algebraically.
  • Mathematical structures in the service of enhancing computational fluency.

Teachers will leave with:

  • Mathematical models that give students access to critical additive and multiplicative relationships.
  • Problems that can be used in the classroom.
  • Specific routines that develop student capacity to articulate their reasoning.
