Seminar with Catherine Fosnot
Fosnot will speak about her work on division of fractions and early algebra and show video of her work.
Fosnot will speak about her work on division of fractions and early algebra, focusing on treating numeric and algebraic expressions as interchangeable equivalent objects (in contrast to procedures), including work on systems of equations. The lecture will include video of some of the work she is doing in grades 5 and 6.
After the talk we will open up for an open discussion regarding implications for secondary grades.
