The goal of the workshop is that teachers work together to build on their own experiences as they explore ways to further student understanding and use of the concepts and skills needed for success in pre-AP and AP mathematics courses. A variety of TEKS-correlated activities, strategies, and methods, including manipulatives, graphing calculators, and other tools, will be used. Emphasis will be on investigation and problem solving algebraically, numerically, graphically, and verbally, since facility changing a problem's representation is often critical in revealing a method of solution. Teachers will share best practices and activities that they have found to be effective in fostering student comprehension in their own classrooms. This course is targeted towards both inexperienced (2 years or less) and experienced teachers.
