Session 10: Classroom Case Studies Grades K-2
 

In the previous sessions, we explored the components of algebraic thinking: fundamental algebraic ideas (content) and mathematical thinking tools (process). You were asked to put yourself in the position of a mathematics learner, both to analyze your individual approach to solving problems and to get some insights into your own conception of algebraic thinking. It may have been difficult for you to separate yourself as a mathematics learner from yourself as a mathematics teacher. Not surprisingly, this is often the case! In this session, however, we will shift the focus to your classroom and to the approaches your students might take to mathematical tasks involving algebraic thinking.

In This Grade Band:

Part A:

Part B:

Developing Algebraic Thinking

Part C:

Learning Objectives

In this session, we will focus on your experiences as a classroom teacher, as you:

• 

Explore how algebraic thinking is developed at your grade level

• 

Examine problems for their algebraic content

• 

Analyze mathematical tasks and their connection to mathematical themes in the course

• 

Critique lessons at your grade level for algebraic thinking
