Foundations of Algebra
Project Director: Susan Jo Russell
Topics: Number Operations/Computation, Patterns/Function/Algebra
Grade Levels: Elementary, Middle School
This project is a collaboration of teachers and researchers who are developing a sourcebook consisting of year-long portraits of classrooms in grades 1-8, showing how teachers and students articulate, represent, and reason about general claims in the context of their work in number and operations. This resource and an on-line course based on it will help teachers develop this work in their own classrooms.
