Dec. 5, 2016, Areteem Institute held a math teacher training workshop, which is one of a series of professional development sessions we are conducting at the Southlands Christian School in southern California. Five high school math teachers participated in the two hour workshop covering the topic of “How to Effectively Teach Algebra Problem Solving”. We presented hands-on activities to demonstrate interesting ways to visualize abstract algebra concepts. We talked about engaging students with various problem solving techniques to stimulate critical thinking and how by using a variety of approaches requiring certain knowledge points, students can be engaged even though they may be at different academic levels. We are delighted to report that the teachers enjoyed the training very much. They are happy that the professional development is relevant to them, and they can use the techniques in their classes. We look forward to hosting more workshops with them throughout the year.
