Research suggests that a stumbling block to understanding algebra stems from not developing an understanding of the equal sign. In this webinar participants will learn how students at all levels, ABE, ESOL, and HSE alike, can construct meaning in algebraic equations by examining relationships on opposite sides of the equal sign. Participants will understand how to use simple instructional routines, visual models, and online resources to help students to develop conceptual understanding of equality. No prior understanding of algebra is needed for this webinar.
