What you’ll learn

If you think it’s impossible to take the numbers out of secondary Math, think again! Although not commonly done, it can be easier to understand and far less daunting for students to learn concepts in Algebra and Geometry when introduced without numbers. In this half-day workspot, you will learn ways to understand Algebra and Geometry by:

  1. Rethinking the typical methods of teaching Algebra and Geometry;
  2. Learning to use Cuisenaire Rods to solve Algebraic equations;
  3. Using a variety of materials that provide a hands on approach to solving Algebraic equations;
  4. Learning games that reinforce concepts in Algebra and Geometry.
