EDAM 65000 Algebraic Reasoning

This course will focus on the content and complexities of teaching and assessing algebraic reasoning in a K-6 setting. Candidates will develop an expertise related to algebraic reasoning that will support teachers and enhance learning. Candidates will also examine the learning trajectories as children develop algebraic reasoning concepts and skills. Course content will include examination of representation and analysis of mathematic situations and structures. Attention will be given to patterns, functions, and the transition from arithmetic to algebra. To be taken concurrently with EDAM 65500 Seminar with Internship III - Algebraic Reasoning (1).
