Summer 2019‎ > ‎

Visual Algebra

Time and Place

I will offer this workshop twice, as part of summer institutes.

Content

In this three-day workshop, I will present a wealth of visual approaches to the teaching of algebra in grades 6-9, including:
  • Lab Gear manipulatives for basic symbol manipulation
  • geoboard lattices for slope 
  • a powerful parallel axes representation for functions
  • intelligent use of technology

Participants will learn techniques that will allow them to better serve the whole range of students by offering:

  • greater access, because of addressing multiple intelligences
  • greater challenge, because of expecting multi-dimensional understanding
  • greater variety, because of using manipulative and electronic tools
Note that the content of the workshop will be slightly different at the two locations. E-mail me if you need to know more about that.


(I am available to offer this workshop or part of it for your school or district -- please get in touch with me.
  I can also present a four- or five-day version including Algebra 2 and teacher-level material.)
