It’s All Connected: The Power of Representation to Build Algebraic Reasoning, Middle and High School
It's All Connected focuses on the power of representation to build algebraic reasoning, offering a collection of 40 quick lessons (each takes less than thirty minutes). The lessons feature:
- creative exercises that illustrate key concepts associated with the graphical representation of functions;
- reproducible pages on which students can record their work (download provided upon purchasing this resource);
- correlations to the Common Core State Standards;
- teaching insights, and more.
Common Core State Connections:
In line with the Common Core State Standards, the lessons in this resource require students to understand and select appropriate units of measurement, to represent and interpret patterns with graphs, and to use graphical representations to model and interpret physical phenomena. In addition, the lessons incorporate all of the mathematical practices outlined in the Common Core State Standards.
