MATH522 Teaching Math (Grades K-2)

Grades:
Kindergarten-2nd
Hours:
45.0

Explore process standards outlined by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and develop lessons around them to help K-2 students establish a strong understanding of math concepts and master foundational mathematical thinking. In this course, you will:
• Review the key NCTM process standards in dedicated sessions for Communication, Problem Solving, Reasoning and Proof, Representation, and Connections, E.g., in the Communication session, learners explore how effective communication can help all learners make sense of mathematics. Learn how to teach students to use oral communication, invented and traditional symbols, movement, pictures, number sentences, and more to share mathematical thinking and express understanding of math concepts.
• Explore effective ways to apply the standards in classroom instruction and integrate their use with content goals
• Develop lesson plans around NCTM standards that strengthen instruction and help students better understand mathematics

MATH330 Differentiating Math Lessons for a Range of Learners

Grades:
Kindergarten-8th
Hours:
30.0

Promote equity and meet academic goals and standards by differentiating mathematics instruction for your diverse classroom. This course teaches you how to target students’ individual strengths and provide personalized supports tailored to their specific learning needs. Receive practical advice for differentiating mathematics instruction in grades K-8, including:
• Proven strategies for meeting the needs of the range of learners in your classroom, including at-risk, English learners, and gifted students
• Powerful models for planning and implementing differentiated, standards-based math lessons that align instruction with learning goals and students’ strengths and difficulties
• Assessment practices for supporting differentiation, including diagnostic assessment, formative assessment, and student self-assessment
• Tools and resources to implement immediate changes to your classroom practice

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.

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.
