[Infographic] Algebra Readiness through Deeper Learning
How Teachers Can Empower Students to Achieve with Confidence
Read our latest white paper on 6 Strategies to help your Students Become Algebra Ready: Empowering Students and Teachers to Achieve with Confidence.
Nearly 2/3 of 8th grade students scored below Proficient in math in the latest National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) assessments.
How can we change that statistic and help students become algebra-ready?
Providing the right conditions for learning, every student can successfully understand algebra. What are these ideal conditions? They involve students thinking critically, working collaboratively, communicating their ideas effectively, and directing their own learning as they understand and master core academic content.
Deeper Learning for Algebraic understanding can help provide the right learning conditions.
Deeper Learning isn’t simply a checklist; it is a set of interrelated competencies that students need in order to develop a true understanding of algebra content and processes that they can use to apply their knowledge to new and unfamiliar challenges in the classroom, in life, and at work.
When students are engaged in Deeper Learning, algebraic reasoning can be developed at any age. The possibilities and opportunities provided by blended learning models using appropriate digital tools and adaptive capabilities can support differentiation, acceleration, and remediation to enable student understanding. For teachers with a large number of students, adaptive learning technologies extend the capacity to individualize lessons and enhance student learning. Using the principles of Deeper Learning both in the classroom and with digital technology, educators can help elementary, middle, and high school students overcome barriers to learning algebra.
This infographic covers the six competencies of Deeper Learning and shares strategies for using these competencies to make learning algebra more empowering, effective, and meaningful.
