The Arc of Arithmetic to Algebra – Elizabeth Peyser
The foundations of number sense and algebraic thinking developed in K–2 are essential for upper elementary, middle school, and high school mathematics, and yet they are often misunderstood. We will explore the progression of learning spanning from kindergarten to high school to experience how math skills developed in the early years prepare students for Algebra 1. No matter what grade you teach, you will find something to use with your students to propel them forward, as well as how to incorporate digital manipulatives for e-learning.

National Director of Math Implementation, Curriculum AssociatesA published NCTM author.
Prior to her current position, Liz was a K-12 math curriculum coordinator for Wichita Public Schools. She developed math training “clinics” for teachers for the college/career-ready standards, which developed into a state-wide training program through the Kansas State Department of Education. Her specialty is helping K-12 math educators interpret the coherence in the standards through interactive clinics using models, tools, and manipulatives. She is a frequent presenter at NCTM, and was published in the February 2022 issue of the NCTM mathematics journal Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PreK-12, and in the April 2022 journal of the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE).
