Algebra Initiative K-5 Home
The K-5 Algebraic Thinking Initiative is a professional development project to support teachers in developing and implementing the Patterns, Functions and Algebra benchmarks and indicators in the Ohio Academic Content Standards for Mathematics. Project participants will explore their current mathematics text in light of what is involved in developing experiences that engage students in algebraic reasoning. A major focus is on understanding the implications of algebra as a K-12 strand rather and the role of algebrafied arithmetic in elementary mathematics.
The K-5 Algebra Initiative provides over 100 hours of high-quality sustained professional development in three phases: An
Phase 1: March 20, 2007 and April 24, 2007 4:00-7:00
Phase 2: June 18-22, 2007 and June 25-29, 2007 8:30-4:30
Phase 3: Fall 2007 Four 3-Hour Sessions(Dates to be Determined)
The K-5 Algebraic Initiative is funded by an Improving Teacher Quality Grant
Administered by The Ohio Board of Regents.
