Using Multiple Representations in Algebra (6-12)
Presented by Edward C. Nolan
Learn how to use multiple representations to help students in their problem solving. Examples will include solutions with multiple representations and how different representations can support different types of learners. Dynamic problems from Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 will demonstrate how representations allow students multiple access points to real world problems.

Research findings from the past seventy-five years offer some significant conclusions about classroom teaching and student learning. Although teaching makes a real difference in what students learn, what kind of teaching is most effective depends on what we want students to learn. Using data from international comparisons to illustrate key points, this seminar will explore emerging research on the relationships between teaching and learning.
