Overview
Learning Math: Patterns, Functions, and Algebra
 

A video- and Web-based course on basic concepts of algebra for K-8 teachers; 9 half-hour and 1 one-hour video programs, course guide, and Web site; graduate credit available

Learning Math: Patterns, Functions, and Algebra is the first of five video- and Web-based mathematics courses for elementary and middle school teachers. These courses, organized around the content standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), will help you better understand the mathematics concepts underlying the content that you teach.

Patterns, Functions, and Algebra explores the "big ideas" in algebraic thinking, such as finding, describing, and using patterns; using functions to make predictions; understanding linearity and proportional reasoning; understanding non-linear functions; and understanding and exploring algebraic structure. The concluding case studies show you how to apply what you have learned in your own classroom. The course consists of 10 two-and-a-half hour sessions with a half-hour of video programming each, problem-solving activities available in print and on the Web, and class discussions.
