## 2018 Summer Workshop

**Implementing the Standards for Mathematical Practice **

**August 13 – 17, 2018 (5-day workshop) **

**Salish Kootenai College, Pablo, MT**

**Registration Deadline: June 1st, 2018**

**Workshop VI:** **Patterns and Algebraic Thinking:** *Bringing the Standards for Mathematical Practice to life through the mathematics of patterns and algebraic thinking for teachers grades 4-14*

** ****Presented by SKC’s Department of Mathematics Education under the leadership of Terry Souhrada and Jamie Souhrada**

**Participants will deepen their own mathematical understandings of a range of mathematical ideas, including:**

- Generalization of patterns that have proven their mathematical power and significance
- Explore linear, quadratic and exponential functions
- Build relationships among the various representations of a function-graphical, numerical, geometric, algebraic and verb/situational
- Simplify equations and expressions
- Use multiple ways to solve a mathematical problem
- Become successful problem solvers and use mathematics for making sense of situations
- Learn what it means to have a productive mathematical disposition

Work with other K-20 teachers of mathematics to solve challenging and engaging problems both collaboratively and as independent problem solvers. Engage with colleagues in professional discussions of mathematics, instructional practice, and other relevant issues.
