Many people feel that reasoning and numeracy come to an end in highschool. How could we mathematize algebraic concepts? What does it mean, and what does it look like to have functional reasoning? Listen as Pam explains how functional reasoning builds off of proportional reasoning and empowers students to analyze and understand patterns of related value sets. Sounds complicated? Don't worry, Kim does her best to keep Pam on track and grounded. 


Talking Points

  • How functional reasoning builds on proportional reasoning
  • It's not about being able to visualize the graph, it's understanding the relationship between the variables
  • How to tell if someone is using functional reasoning
