Use this approach to developing algebraic identities as a generalization of combinatorial and quantitative reasoning. Secondary school students reason about important ideas in the instructional sequence, and teachers consider newfound implications for and extensions of this generalization in secondary algebra curricula.
How would students feel when learning through the use of mathematical modeling? On investigation, this article reveals that students felt better prepared for assessments, learned valuable life skills, and saw the relevance of mathematics to their lives outside of the classroom.
