MATH522 **Teaching Math: A Special Collection from Annenberg Learner**

- Grades:
- Kindergarten-2nd

- Hours:
- 45.0

Expand your understanding of the key five process standards developed by National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM): Communication, Problem Solving, Reasoning and Proof, Representation, and Connections. Learn also how multimedia resources (videos, student-teacher dialogues, and interactives) can impact student learning. This course will help you to coordinate your knowledge of both standards and resources to give students a fuller sense of what mathematics is, and to help them achieve both a strong conceptual foundation as well as necessary mathematical thinking skills.

MATH1035 **Connecting with the Sounds and Motions of Mathematics **

- Grades:
- 9th-12th

- Hours:
- 3.0

The connection between music and math goes back to the ancient Greek notion of music as the math of time. Understanding the connection between math and music and how sound waves can be expressed mathematically using Fourier analysis has allowed great advances in sound engineering and in all of digital technology. The branch of mathematics called network theory provides insights into extremely complicated networks such as ecosystems while the mathematics of synchronization gives insight into the workings of the human heart. In this course you will reach beyond formulas and computations to explore the mathematics behind patterns, relationships, and real-world problems. Along the way, you will meet some of the fascinating people who are studying today's emerging questions about mathematics, and learn about the historical significance of typical mathematical concepts. Through Annenberg Learner videos, interactive activities, and problem solving, you will delve into the "why" and not just the "how" of mathematical questions. At the end of the course, learners earn a Certificate of Completion.

MATH181 **Math in Everyday Life for Grades K-5**

- Grades:
- Kindergarten-5th

- Hours:
- 15.0

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.

MATH512 **Achieving Learning Goals through Accomplished Mathematics Instruction**

- Grades:
- 6th-12th

- Hours:
- 45.0

This research-based course provides guidance on how to examine your math instruction and its impact on student learning. Through the lens of professional teaching standards, you will set learning goals for your math lessons, determine how different types of goals connect, and define how students will show evidence of achievement within those goals. This course is facilitated by National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) in mathematics. Note: Course 1 is helpful, but not a required precursor for Course 2: Guiding Student Learning Through Accomplished Mathematics Instruction.

###
MATH430 **Seeing Math™: Proportional Reasoning**

- Grades:
- 6th-12th

- Hours:
- 30.0

Discover techniques to guide your students through the critical transition from elementary-level computing to more complex, proportional thinking. Through videos, observation, and peer discussion, you will reflect on how students approach problems and discuss ways to support student understanding. Comments from math specialist Dr. Richard Lesh are also presented in conjunction with videos of student learners to help construct and assess students' development of proportional reasoning. Take this course to unlock the mystery of student thinking.

###
MATH165 **Enabling Students with Special Needs to Succeed in Math Class**

- Grades:
- 4th-8th

- Hours:
- 30.0

Learn practical ways to adapt your own math curricula and work with special needs teachers to help all your students succeed. Develop a plan that builds accessibility strategies into your daily instruction. This course will help you achieve the goals set forth by UDL (Universal Design for Learning) as well as help you best comply with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) that mandates for a least restrictive environment for learning.

MATH517 **Guiding Student Learning through Accomplished Mathematics Instruction**

- Grades:
- 6th-12th

- Hours:
- 45.0

"This course is ideal for 6th to 12th grade teachers looking to streamline their math instructional goals. This course will explore key aspects of teaching practices, such as: 1. A ""focal"" student approach 2. A classroom culture focused on mathematics learning 3. A closer alignment of goals and instructional methods, and 4. Checking for student understanding during lessons. You will learn how to effectively guide student learning, based on results from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards' performance assessment of mathematics teachers. Note: Course 1 (MATH512: Achieving Learning Goals through Accomplished Mathematics Instruction) will be a helpful, but not required, precursor for this course. This course is facilitated by National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) in mathematics."

MATH270 **Developing Algebraic Thinking in Grades 3-5**

- Grades:
- 3rd-5th

- Hours:
- 30.0

Break down your math lessons to reexamine the way you teach algebra. In this course, you become the student, solving mathematical problems in order to better understand how you can use algebra to identify patterns, analyze situations, and practice representing relationships with mathematical models. As part of the course assignments, you will practice your newly developed strategies on 3-5 grade students, monitor their learning process, and assess their understanding of algebra. Peer discussions will help you reflect and use insightful feedback to improve your teaching practice.
