Resources: Strategies for Building Algebraic Thinking in the Elementary Grades

Connecting Arithmetic to Algebra
Connecting Arithmetic to Algebra

Algebra readiness: It’s a topic of concern that seems to pervade every school district. How can we help all students succeed in the mathematics they are studying in the elementary grades and become ready for later instruction? The answer lies not in studying additional content, but in developing ways of thinking that underlie both arithmetic and algebra. Connecting Arithmetic to Algebra shows how investigating the behavior of the operations can move students forward.

"This wonderfully accessible book, written in ways that place the reader in the center of a thinking, questioning, and reasoning classroom, provides teachers with practical strategies and explicit techniques for making these critical connections."
—Steven Leinwand,author of Accessible Mathematics

Susan Jo Russell, Deborah Schifter, and Virginia Bastable are coauthors of the Developing Mathematical Ideas series (Pearson) as well as contributors to the early algebra content of the Investigations in Number, Data, and Space (Pearson) K-5 math curriculum.
