You can reach all learners! This workshop is taught by two professionals with extensive
classroom experience in both high school mathematics and special education. We will share,
through exploration of the X=Y linear equation how we develop the conceptual and structural
understanding of algebra for all students. What’s more, we will demonstrate how
these same activities develop and extend student understanding in Advanced Algebra, Statistics,
Geometry, and Calculus. Join us as we explore a “shopping progression” that starts at Dollar Deals
(1 item = 1 dollar) and extends into finding the equation of a line from two points.  We will have
time to plan and explore as well as to discuss critical vocabulary that organizes students’ thinking
and abilities with the critical properties of equality, and the language and power of units. Val
Faulkner and Austin James will be your facilitators for the day.
