Algebra Ready Delivers Summer Institute

Central Ohio teachers are learning new and innovative ways to teach pre-algebra using digital resources with Algebra Ready, a year-long professional development opportunity for 7th- and 8th-grade math teachers and school district math coaches. Funded by a grant under the Improving Teacher Quality Program from the Ohio Department of Higher Education, Algebra Ready is led by Drs. Kui Xie, Hea-Jin Lee, Ivo Herzog, and Nicole Luthy at The Ohio State University’s College of Education and Human Ecology and College of Arts and Sciences. Teachers and coaches registered with the expectations of improving their content knowledge in pre-algebra and algebra; understanding Ohio’s learning standards and content alignment; learning how to evaluate digital tools and content; and improving their pedagogical knowledge in teaching math with digital resources.

Algebra Ready to Improve Teacher Quality

We are thrilled to announce that our latest project, Algebra Ready: Teaching Mathematics with Digital Content, has received funding support from Ohio Department of Higher Education. The project builds upon the success of our previous EDCITE: Evaluating Digital Content for Instructional and Teaching Excellence project and has design features tailored to address the specific needs in algebra teaching.

Algebra Ready aims to improve teachers’ mathematical content knowledge and pedagogical strategies, their technological pedagogical knowledge for adopting digital resources in teaching mathematics and, ultimately, to increase students’ academic achievement and college readiness in the area of mathematics. The project focuses on algebra across grade levels and the contents are well aligned with Ohio’s New Learning Standards. (more…)
