Making Sense of School Algebra
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.
