Developed for teachers, administrators, and professional development providers, the guide offers three evidence-based recommendations for teaching algebra:

• Use solved problems to engage students in analysing algebraic reasoning and strategies.

• Teach students to utilise the structure of algebraic representations.

• Teach students to intentionally choose from alternative algebraic strategies when solving problems.

To develop the guide, the WWC combined recommendations from an expert panel with the findings of existing research. The guide includes examples to use in class and solutions to potential roadblocks.
