Promoting Mathematical Representation Skills (Grades K-2)

Course Section Description:

Examine the role that mathematical representation plays in teaching and in student learning while also investigating the importance of connecting mathematical instruction to prior knowledge, other subject areas, and everyday experiences. Increase familiarity with and understanding of the NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) process standards of representation and connections. Investigate both conventional and non-conventional forms that young students use to represent their mathematical thinking, as well as the thinking processes they employ to generate those forms. Examine how the representation standard is part of the total process of helping students make sense of mathematics. Learn how to assess personal formal and informal representation skills. Through Annenberg Learner videos, interactive activities, and problem solving, explore content and activities to help students create representations, using skills connected to real-life problem situations.

Note: This is a self-paced course accessible for one year after enrollment, and not eligible for graduate credit.
