Linking Factors and Multiples to Algebraic Reasoning

In this paper we illustrate how a task has the potential to provide students rich explorations in algebraic reasoning by thoughtfully connecting number concepts to corresponding conceptual underpinnings.

Footnotes

The Ordering for the Holiday Party task is rooted in number and has the potential to give students rich explorations by aligning numerical procedures with conceptual underpinnings.
