NCTM 2018: Building meaning into algebra equations

Raymond Johnson, David Webb, and I facilitated a session at NCTM 2018 in Washington DC.

In the session, we introduced two models for algebra equations, discussed how each model reveals a different structure, and how each model can be used develop meaningful strategies for algebraic manipulations. 

We also discussed how the models can be developed through progressive formalization of informal contexts.

A number line is also a great model for algebra equations.
