Teachers and researchers worked in partnership to create AlgebraByExample assignments that:
AlgebraByExample helps students:
AlgebraByExample provides teachers:
No! That’s not right because...
a3 = a + a + a
Development of AlgebraByExample was led by Julie Booth (Temple University) through a SERP collaboration with the Minority Student Achievement Network (MSAN). The SERP-MSAN partnership has been supported to conduct this work by The Goldman Sachs Foundation and by the Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of Education, through Grant R305A100150 to Strategic Education Research Partnership Institute.
