CAREER: Algebraic Knowledge for Teaching: A Cross-cultural perspective

NSF Awards: 1350068

2016 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6

The goal of this five-year CAREER project is to identify, from a cross-cultural perspective, essential Algebraic Knowledge for Teaching (AKT) that will enable elementary teachers to better develop students’ algebraic thinking. This video reports the main findings of our year 1 data. Based on US and Chinese expert teachers’ integrated instructional insights of inverse relations, we have identified three AKT components: unpacking one worked example sufficiently, using concrete representations to model quantity relationships, and asking comparison questions to promote connection-making.
