Building Algebra From Early Geometry Concepts

Geometry is traditionally taught as a set of rules and formulas to be memorized and applied, but students can develop algebraic reasoning and habits of mind from the very beginning. The early geometric concepts of area and perimeter of rectangles are rich with opportunities to engage students in algebraic reasoning and sophisticated problem-solving. In this workshop, you will deepen your understanding of the kinds of reasoning that form the foundations of algebra and see how that foundation can be developed in geometry lessons, even at the earliest levels.

Learning What Students Know: Using Student Work for Formative Assessment

Formative assessment is the ongoing work of understanding how your students are understanding what you are teaching. While there are many ways to do formative assessment, one that is often readily accessible is looking at student work. There is a lot that can be learned by analyzing how students illustrate or describe their thinking—more than just a tally of what they got right or wrong. Formative assessment informs your instructional decisions so that your teaching can meet students where they are and help them move forward.
