SEYS 792 - Developing Algebraic Thinking in the Middle School Classroom

Overview

Course Title

Developing Algebraic Thinking in the Middle School Classroom

Description

Developing algebraic thinking is more than simply practicing how to “solve for x.” It involves recognizing patterns, modeling relationships between and among quantities, comparing and analyzing quantitative relationships, variables and functions, and nontraditional, non-routine problem solving. This course will build on these ideas and provide suggestions and methods for developing algebraic thinking in the middle grades. Admission is limited, competitive, and open to teachers of mathematics that hold master’s degrees.
