#SlowMath – Looking for Structure
and Noticing Regularity in Repeated Reasoning
4:30 PM – 5:30 PM
Walter E. Washington Convention Center, 145 AB

How do we provide opportunities for students to learn to use structure and repeated reasoning? What expressions, equations, and diagrams require making what isn’t pictured visible? Let’s engage in tasks where making use of structure and repeated reasoning can provide an advantage and think about how to provide that same opportunity for students.
