Speaker:  Herb Gross

Sponsoring Committee:  Developmental Mathematics

Time:  3:00pm EDT / 2:00pm CDT / 1:00 pm MDT / 12:00 pm PDT

Description:  This second webinar will discuss the implications of the common student comment “The algebra course was easy.  I could do everything except the word problems”.  Sadly in the textbook of life there are only word problems (which, ironically in basic algebra can always be solved without the aid of algebra!).  To help students learn to internalize algebra better, Herb will share with us his concept of teaching algebra as a game in which the rules are the axioms of arithmetic (the field axioms) and the objective is to discover the inescapable consequences that follow logically from these rules.
