High School Algebra Panel

Day: 
Thu

The panel will present an overview of research-grounded evidence about what is critical for students to learn about algebra in grades 6–12.

Date/Time: 
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Session Type: 
Panel

One thread of the CADRE Algebra SIG discussion has focused on obstacles to student success in elementary algebra. For example, proficiency in numerical calculations with integers and rational numbers is often raised as a prerequisite for success in algebra; yet many students who have these skills still find algebra difficult. The panel will discuss other potential ingredients to success in high school algebra that are often short-changed in school mathematics and school culture.

Analyzing Early Algebra Learning Progressions for Grades 3-8

Day: 
Thu

This session will critically examine conjectured Early Algebra Learning Progressions for grades 3–8 for coherence, alignment, and completeness.

Date/Time: 
8:30 am to 9:45 am
Session Type: 
Product Feedback Session
Session Materials: 

This session will critically examine conjectured Early Algebra Learning Progressions for grades 3–8 for coherence, alignment, and completeness.

Algebra in Early Mathematics: What is Critical?

Day: 
Thu

The panel will present an overview of research-grounded evidence about what is critical for students to learn about algebra in grades 1–5.

Date/Time: 
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Session Type: 
Panel
Session Materials: 

In this panel discussion, panelists will identify some ideas that are becoming well-established by researchers even though they were by no means evident just 15–20 years ago and are yet to be assimilated into curricula and teacher education programs. They will identify what they consider to be critical issues for children to make progress in algebra in grades 1–5.
