  • Tasks that generate group discussion of algebraic procedures are hard to find. I will give sample problems designed to probe understanding of algebraic procedures, and I will use video clips to show how students can be engaged in reasoning, discussion, and use of academic language to gain a deeper understanding than practice alone can give.
