Title: Teaching Elementary & Middle School Algebra Utilizing NASA Activities. [Methods; Science & Math]

Course Description: This course is designed to provide elementary and middle school teachers with the tools to broaden students’ skills in using algebra. At the end of this course participants will be familiar with hands-on activities developed by NASA educators. Activities are based on the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards and developed with an emphasis on interdisciplinary approach (math, science and technology), and in many cases they are connected to everyday life. Major issues to be addressed include: (a) Understanding patterns, relations, and functions; (b) Representing and analyzing mathematical situations and structures using algebraic symbols; (c) Using mathematical models to represent and understand quantitative relationships; and (d) Analyzing change in various contexts.
