This session, the third one in the Annenberg series "Patterns, Functions, and Algebra", enables the teacher to investigate algorithms and functions. Topics covered include the importance of doing and undoing in mathematics, determining when a process can or cannot be undone, using function machines to picture and undo algorithms, and recognizing that functions produce unique outputs. The session includes sequentially organized problems, video viewing, interactive activities, readings, and homework. The materials may be used on your own, in a study group, or as a facilitated online course for graduate credit, which is offered at a reasonable cost. | Course, Video Grade Level: 5, 6+ Resource is part of a PD collection | |

This session, the second one in the Annenberg series "Patterns, Functions, and Algebra", enables the teacher to explore the processes of finding, describing, explaining, and predicting using patterns. Topics covered include how to determine if patterns in tables are uniquely described and how to distinguish between closed and recursive descriptions. This session also introduces the idea that there are many different conceptions of algebra.
