35- Base-Ten Blocks and Fractions to Beginning Algebra: Unifying Computational Algorithms

Thursday, April 18, 2013: 8:00 AM-9:15 AM
Mile High 3 C (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Marvin E. Harrell
Elizabeth G. Yanik and Nancy Smith

  • 35 Harrell Base ten Blocksand Fractions to Begginning Algebra-Unifying Computational Algorithms.pdf (5.1 MB)

  • We will extend conceptually based computational models/algorithms found in grade schools to beginning algebra by using base-ten blocks to develop algorithms used by elementary students and then using algebra tiles to develop the analogous algebraic algorithms. Similarly, we will tie algebraic algorithms to those involving fractions.
