Algebraic Thinking


This page is a collection of my posts about teaching algebra and algebraic thinking. Although the concepts in the lessons/ activities are algebra concepts, they are always link to concepts in geometry, numbers, measurement, etc. The main teaching approach is Teaching through Problem Solving (TtPS) or via mathematical investigation. The objective is always dual: the learning of the mathematical concepts and the development of higher-order thinking skills/mathematical habits of mind.
