Saturday 5th May Dietmar Küchemann
Making Sense of School Algebra. 10:00 to 12:30.
Room 802, UCL Institute of Education Bedford Way.
(No need to book, just turn up)
I have recently been posting sets of algebra tasks on Twitter (via my alter ego @ProfSmudge) and writing more extensively about them in a blog (http://mathsmed.co.uk/ALGblog/). The tasks are intended to help students make sense of school algebra, by focussing on structure. I hope also that some of the tasks will help convey the ‘purpose and utility’ of algebra.
In this session, I’d like to work through some of the tasks and consider how they might be used in the classroom, and to share any experiences participants might have had of trying them with their students.
See you at Conference 2018, 23rd June 9:30 for 10:00 finish by 16:00.
**The conference will be held at the home of the London Mathematical Society, De Morgan House, 57-58 Russell Square, WC1B 4HS**
