Learning Trajectories in Grades K-2 Children's Understanding of Algebraic Rel...

NSF Awards: 1415509

2017 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6

This video will showcase the powerful ways that young children, ages 5 -7, can think algebraically. In particular, the project featured in this video aims to understand the cognitive foundations of children's algebraic thinking. This core research goal is essential if we are to implement with fidelity the Common Core Standards for Mathematics, which advocate the introduction of algebraic thinking beginning in kindergarten. We will explore particular aspects of children's algebraic thinking, specifically as it relates to their ability to generalize, represent, and justify mathematical claims. We will also discuss aspects of instruction and task design that support a more comprehensive treatment of core algebraic concepts and practices in the lower elementary grades.
