The Impact of a Teacher-Led Early Algebra Intervention on Children's Algebra...


2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6

This video will showcase evidence that children in elementary grades can engage in algebraic thinking in powerful ways. We will briefly discuss the framework for early algebra that guides our work and how this has informed the design of a curricular intervention for developing children's algebraic thinking. We will share findings from a randomized study of the efficacy of our intervention, across Grades 3 – 5, when it is implemented by teachers as part of their regular classroom instruction. In particular, we will share results on how children in Grades 3-5 develop longitudinally in their algebraic thinking, including growth in their use of algebraic strategies to solve non-routine problems.
