**How would you teach?
**

n

Most American teachers said they would use manipulatives in ways that paralleled their understanding l Develop a concrete idea of subtraction l Build understanding of 1 ten = 10 ones l One teacher wanted to build the idea of equivalent exchanges, which is equal to the Chinese idea of decomposing numbers.

In your handout packet l Is this approach more procedural or conceptual? l Which algebraic concepts does it support? l How could it be enhanced to better support algebraic thinking? l Would you use this approach? Why or why not?

Final Points

n

Americans talk about basic math; Chinese talk about fundamental mathematics. How children are taught elementary mathematics sets them up for success or failure in Algebra. The knowledge gap between American and Chinese teachers parallels the learning gap between American and Chinese children.

I will post lessons. As a group, we will discuss ways to strengthen the algebraic connections. You will take one lesson from your text, identify the core math that is being taught and identify the algebraic concepts that could be included. You will post this lesson and your comments about how you could teach it.
