We invite teachers, coaches, and other instructional leaders who will be using Transition to Algebra materials in the upcoming school year to a special orientation at Education Development Center (EDC). Transition to Algebra is a full-year algebra support curriculum that focuses on building algebraic habits of mind in order to raise the competence and confidence of students who may need extra support to succeed in a first-year algebra class. Find out more at ttalgebra.edc.org.
At this professional development session, teachers will be introduced to the habits of mind approach, engage with materials from the curriculum, and learn strategies to better support students’ learning of algebra using unique features of the curriculum, such as puzzles, explorations, and Mental Mathematics. Participants will also have the opportunity to share ideas and strategies with other teachers about how to support students who struggle with mathematics or algebra.
