enAlgebra Curriculum Takes a Habits of Mind Approach
http://www.edc.org/newsroom/press_releases/algebra_curriculum_takes_habits_mind_approach
An EDC mathematics curriculum takes a new approach to algebra learning, connecting the concrete procedures of arithmetic to the abstract reasoning that success in algebra requires. Transition to Algebra, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation and published by Heinemann, builds on a history of curriculum development at EDC centered on fostering mathematical habits of mind. It is designed to be used flexibly to support algebra in Grades 6—10.<p><a href="http://www.edc.org/newsroom/press_releases/algebra_curriculum_takes_habits_mind_approach" target="_blank">read more</a></p>CurriculumMathematicsMiddle GradesScience, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM)Mon, 07 Apr 2014 15:01:31 +00009082 at http://www.edc.orgDeveloping Students' Mathematical Habits

Malawi primary schools face issues of large classes, high repetition rates, and teachers who resort to lectures and other marginally effective rote learning techniques to teach crowded classrooms. The Malawi Tikwere! (Let’s go up!) program uses interactive radio instruction (<span class="caps">IRI</span>) broadcasts to address these issues and bring student-centered instruction to primary schools countrywide.<p><a href="http://www.edc.org/projects/malawi_interactive_radio_instruction_tikwere" target="_blank">read more</a></p>Building CommunitiesCurriculumElementary GradesGlobal ProjectsImproving SchoolsLiteracyMalawiMathematicsSub-Saharan AfricaTechnologyYouth DevelopmentTue, 08 Oct 2013 03:01:21 +0000864 at http://www.edc.orgFocus on Mathematics
