Explore how students can make sense aspects of number and algebra through geometry. The discussion will include how students use models of length, to explore positive and negative numbers and the order of operations; the area of trapezoids, to explore equivalent expressions and the order of operations; and rigid transformations, to study integer operations and expressions of generalized patterns.
