Adult Numeracy Instruction-Professional Development Institute 3 (ANI)
The overall vision of Adult Numeracy Instruction: Professional Development (ANI-PD) is to increase the capacity of teachers, programs, and states to provide high-quality math instruction in Adult Basic Education programs. The mathematical content of this two-day ANI-PD Institute, the last of three, consists of algebra and number and operation sense with integers. Connections between algebraic thinking and representations (such as words, diagrams, tables, graphs, and equations) are used to make sense of what the symbols mean and to make decisions and predictions in contextual situations. Arithmetic procedures are connected to algebraic principles, and various integer models are explored.
