Lead Speaker:
David Janssen
Bethany Farmer


As students develop their understanding in early Operations and Algebraic Thinking (OA), misconceptions form. How? Why? And what can we do to support students as learners? Together we will analyze common misconceptions and collaborate as we look at how students think, struggle, and reason. Mistakes and confusion are powerful learning opportunities.
