Adusu Algebra is a concrete materials kit developed by full-time Mathematics teacher Ruth Adusu who has over 30 years’ 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 concrete” it avoids or eliminates common misunderstandings, provides immediate feedback, supports correct mathematical working, simplifies algebraic processes, allows students to explore questions, and improves recall. Differentiation is also facilitated by the use of Adusu Algebra.
Participants will use a student kit to complete a variety of questions to experience for themselves the value of having a hands on tool for algebra. We will discuss common misunderstandings and how language and notation can mislead or confuse students.
Even if participants do not purchase this product, attending this session will give teachers fresh insight and provide strategies to better equip their students to approach algebra with confidence.
