This project is designing, producing, and testing two professional development modules to help teachers learn about mathematics content and development of student thinking in early algebra. The modules, on themes of generalization and functions, are part of Developing Mathematical Ideas (DMI), a series of seminars designed for elementary and middle-grade teachers of mathematics. Funded by the Education Development Center through a grant from the National Science Foundation.
