Description

Accessible Algebra is for any pre-algebra or algebra teacher who wants to provide a rich and fulfilling experience to students as they develop new ways of thinking through and about algebra.

Each of the thirty lessons in this book identifies and addresses a focal domain and standard in algebra, then lays out the common misconceptions and challenges students may face as they work to investigate and understand problems.

Anne and Steve met with and listened to students in real classrooms as the students explained what problem-solving strategies they were using or worked to ask the right questions that would lead them to a deeper understanding of algebra. The authors describe these classroom scenarios in each lesson and also suggest ways teachers may assign a problem or activity, how to include formative assessment strategies, and suggestions for grouping students.

Each lesson also includes sections on how to support struggling students, as well as additional resources and readings.
