CI 513 Enhancing Algebraic Thinking: Generalization about Operations

Examine generalizations at the heart of studying operations in the elementary grades. Express generalizations in common language and algebraically, develop representation-based arguments, study what it means to prove, and extend generalizations from whole numbers to integers. Student thinking is at the center of this course through examination of student work.




Course intended for licensed elementary teachers and cannot be used in place of the mathematics prerequisites for the initial teacher preparation.
