Why can generalizing key words be misleading to students? The focus of this learning experience is to recognize the pitfalls of teaching "keywords" as tricks when solving math problems. Participants will also identify alternatives to solving problems without overgeneralizing keywords.

Note: This course is different than most as it is meant to be taken by a group of participants in a face to face setting, but only one person will need to be logged into the course. The course will serve as a tool to guide participants and provide resources on the topic described above. The course should be displayed on a projector or screen large enough for the entire group to see. A minimum of three people is required to take this course, it cannot be taken by individuals.  Before you begin make sure you print the handouts listed in the first section of the course.
