Algebra Readiness-Building a strong foundation for success in algebra in the era of Common Core.

Success in algebra expands opportunities for college and career; the foundations should start long before high school and make a successful transition between arithmetic and algebra. In order to think and reason mathematically, young students need to develop algebraic thinking, which includes recognizing and analyzing patterns, studying and representing relationships, and most importantly making sense of mathematics. How can we support our youngest learners to think algebraically? These series of algebra readiness sessions, students in grade 4 to 6 will develop essential understanding of algebraic thinking, reason abstractly, operate variables, grasp functional thinking, develop a holistic view of equations and inequalities, and enter the initial steps of the proof world.

**Recommended Grade Levels:**4th-6th**Prerequisites:**None**Teacher:**Dr. Sinan Kanbir. Please see our faculty page for his bio.**Time of the Class:**Sundays 6 pm – 7:30 pm Eastern Time (3 pm – 4:30 pm in California).**Sessions:**There will be a total of 15 sessions comprised of 12 teaching sessions and 3 quiz sessions (one of them being the final exam). The first two quizzes will be completed by the students online at their convenience until the assigned deadline by the teacher.**Dates:**September 14, 21, 28, October 5, 12, 19, 26, November 2, 9, 16, 23, December 7, 14 (Final Exam)**Topics Covered:**– Problem solving- Standards for Mathematical Practices (SMP-Common Core)

Students will develop a positive attitude toward problem solving and becoming a successful problem solver by practicing SMPs. The goals are to try several strategies, understanding the problems and persevering solving them, and reasoning abstractly.

– Structure in the Number Systems

Algebra is often referred to as generalized arithmetic. Two of the most challenging aspects of research into early algebra learning are mapping student transitions from recognition of numerical properties to algebraic structures, and defining levels of algebraic abstraction. With recognition of the structural properties, students will able to recognize algebraic structure of numbers.

– Modeling and Functional Approaches: From Recursive to Explicit Rule

Students will articulate the ideas about linear functional relationships and engage functional thinking. This session can motivate students’ development of symbolic representation skills.

– Proportional and Multiplicative Reasoning

Students will move from additive thinking to multiplicative thinking. They will be able coordinates units and connect different types of proportions.

– Equations and Inequalities_ Holistic Approaches

Students will understand the structure and the meaning of the equal sign. They will then develop holistic approach to solve some advanced equations.

– Algebra and Geometry Connection-Geometric Habits of Mind

Students will relate various geometric formulas and their algebraic structures. They will be able to identify functional nature of the formulas along with some of the conjectures. Students will use algebraic thinking to making sense of geometric formulas.

– Proof and Justification

Students will attempt to complete a formal mathematical proof by using their abstract reasoning. They will develop inductive and deductive reasoning to investigate their conjectures. These sessions will also enrich middle-grade geometry learning by exploring and proving well-known formulas.
