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.
