Lead Speaker:
Carole E. Greenes

Unusual algebraic reasoning tasks will be presented, including those that require data, the rank ordering of solutions, working backwards to figure out the problem, or defending opinions. Other tasks require identifying what's wrong-if anything, thinking and choosing, predicting and explaining, connecting calculations to contexts, and making sense of situations.
