Algebra: Introducing Algebraic Reasoning
with Amy Vickers
Research 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. Finally, you'll 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.
