Adusu Algebra: Concrete Materials For Teaching Algebra

Summary

Adusu Algebra is a concrete materials kit developed by full-time mathematics teacher Ruth Adusu who has 30 years of experience in the classroom. It allows students to physically build and manipulate expressions, equations and inequalities. By bringing algebra “out of the abstract and into the physical” it avoids or eliminates common misunderstandings, provides immediate feedback, supports correct mathematical working, simplifies algebraic processes, allows student to explore questions, and improves recall. Differentiation in the classroom is also facilitated by the use of Adusu Algebra.

Participants will use a student kit to complete a variety of algebraic questions to experience for themselves the value of having a hands-on tool for algebra.

Attending this session will give teachers fresh insight into how students think about algebra and provide strategies to better equip their students to approach algebra with confidence, regardless of whether any products are purchased.
