Prerequisite: Description:

equationResearch suggests that math topics, including algebra, should be taught at all levels, not just for passing high school equivalency tests. In this course, you’ll learn how to introduce algebraic reasoning to your students, and you’ll experiment with strategies for teaching numeric patterns, relationships, and functions based on real‐life situations. You’ll also explore strategies to help students model quantitative relationships using graphs, tables, words, and equations.

*The prerequisite is recommended, not required.

By the end of the course, you will be able to use strategies for introducing pre‐algebra concepts; explore, identify, analyze, and extend patterns in various contexts; describe and represent numbers using words, tables, rules, and equations; recognize and use algebraic symbols to model mathematical and contextual situations; analyze change in various qualitative contexts; and use the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education (CCRS) Mathematical Standards and Practices to enhance the focus, rigor, and coherence of algebraic reasoning in your instruction.
