A computer-enhanced package for learning school algebra
£96,147, Economic and Social Research Council This project will roll out the outcomes of the ESRC/EPSRC-funded MiGen project, in order to enhance the teaching of early algebra in the secondary school. MiGen focused on the widespread difficulty that students routinely fail to see the point of algebra and cannot therefore use algebra as a tool for thinking mathematically. MiGen addressed these challenges by building a pedagogical and technical environment so that 11-14 year-old students could appreciate from the outset that algebra is about building and expressing structure and generality and that symbolic rules are the language of this expression. In this project, we will assemble and disseminate a polished package for students and for teachers of computer and text-based materials arising from the MiGen environment to support the learning of early algebra. The package will be explicitly aligned to the National Curriculum and to teachers’ practice at Key Stage 3.
