Connecting Arithmetic to Algebra

Starting September 28, 2015

Application Deadline: September 11.

CAA_bookcoverConnecting Arithmetic to Algebra (CAA) is an interactive online course focusing on generalizations that arise from the study of number and operations in grades 1 through 8.

  • Participants study the process of articulating general claims, working to understand those claims, and learning how to prove them.
  • CAA spans the entire school year in three separate 6-week sessions so teachers can develop the mathematical thinking of their own students in the context of their own curriculum.
  • Each 6-week session includes two live virtual learning events.
  • Instructors provide individualized feedback based on discussions from teachers’ own classroom and students’ work. This feedback includes suggestions for pedagogical strategies to enhance mathematics discussions.
  • Participants will receive 6 graduate credits (4 in mathematics and 2 in math education) upon successful completion of the course.
