Math in Everyday Life for Grades K-5
- Course Description:
Make math "real" for your young students with a fresh look at problem solving, calculators, and the Internet in the classroom. In this course, we'll take a look at the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Calculator-Usage and Problem-Solving Standards for a framework to design lesson plans, address content, and meet state standards with your curriculum. Through the course assignment, you will make math real by designing a "walking field trip" that is comprised of tasks found in students' daily lives.
Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.
Classroom Link-Access to students recommended. PBS Classroom Link courses ask learners to implement lessons with their class or with a small group of students (options for learners without access to students are available).
For assignments and evaluation details, see the full Syllabus.
