Are you seeking strategies to ensure continuity and coherence in equation instruction across grade levels? Vertical alignment establishes a smooth progression of equation-solving skills by systematically building upon foundational concepts taught in earlier grades. Join Sofia Guerrero for this hands-on, interactive workshop as we dive into vertical alignment for solving equations in grade six through high school, investigate how solving equations evolves across grade levels, and compare the development of these critical skills. Get ready to revolutionize your equation instruction and empower your students to become confident problem solvers at every stage of their mathematical journey! Sofia’s expertise as an instructional specialist will equip you with the tools you need to enhance student understanding, retention, and mastery of equations that will facilitate a seamless transition from elementary to secondary mathematics. 

This is workshop one of three for the series titled “Vertical Alignment for Solving Equations in Secondary Math.” 

Key Takeaways: 

  1. Explore strategies for vertically aligning equation instruction to ensure coherence and continuity across grade levels. 
  2. Learn how to scaffold equation-solving skills, providing appropriate support and challenges at each stage of the vertical progression. 
  3. Discover techniques for differentiating instruction to meet the diverse needs of students as they progress along the vertical pathway to equation mastery. 
  4. Gain insights into leveraging technology and manipulatives to enhance equation instruction and deepen student understanding at every level. 

Workshop Details: 

While we recommend that you attend all sessions of the workshop series to meet the learning objectives, each workshop can be attended as a standalone. Full members will also have access to view the recordings on demand and earn up to three continuing education credits. 

Special Technology Instructions: 

Attendees will need access to an internet-enabled device, a personal Google account (not affiliated with their school), and an optional free Desmos account. SimpleK12’s Google Classroom will be utilized for the interactive and hands-on components of this workshop.


Participants will complete an exit ticket to demonstrate their understanding of the workshop objectives and reflect on their learning.
