Constructing Beams and Modeling with Algebra FILLING

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

We'll show you how you can use construction beams to help students develop algebraic thinking. This student-centered, hands-on activity allows students to engage, make meaning of, and communicate about mathematics, while learning about analyzing and representing patterns in data with recursive and explicit equations as means to problem solve.

This presentation showcases analyzing collected data, and modeling patterns in data with recursive and explicit equations in order to problem solve with-in a context. This student-centered activity allows students to engage, make meaning of, and communicate about mathematics; students develop algebraic thinking. The teaching strategies modeled and resources provided can be implemented immediately in the classroom with students of various grades and skill levels.
