Institute Snapshots


  Institute directors Dr. Rose Strahan and Dr. Stella Wear prepare for the 2004 Institute. They invite you to explore the institute site to see teachers engaged with algebra tiles, pattern blocks, technology, two-color counters, and much more. They also hope that you find the lesson plans helpful as you plan your new year.

Piecing it together. I think a piece is missing.

Still Classifying…

More Patterns and Now Algebra Tiles…What Next?

You mean I’m right? Now John, you are to keep your tiles on the table.


Oh yeah. A square really is a rectangle. Throwing in the towel…we had enough!
