#### Math in Everyday Life for Grades K-5

Teacherline Class

Make mathematics "real" for your young students with a fresh look at problem solving, calculators, and the Internet in the classroom. Review 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. Then, develop a "walking field trip" through tasks found in students' daily lives.

#### Patterns and Relations: Algebra Concepts for Grades 1-5

Teacherline Class

Teach your students how algebra connects to patterns and relationships, by incorporating manipulatives, technology, problem-solving activities, and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards into your algebra curriculum.

#### Ready to Teach Fractions: Part 1

Teacherline Class

Unlock the mysteries surrounding children's struggle with fractions. Through the work of the Rational Number Project (RNP), you will view fraction number sense as an extension of whole number sense, and become familiar with the Lesh Translation Model. As the cornerstone of this course, the practical and research-based RNP fraction curriculum will be made available for classroom implementation.

#### Ready to Teach Fractions: Part 2

Teacherline Class

Build on the understanding you gained in Ready to Teach Fractions Part 1, the prerequisite course focused on developing meaning for fractions and working with concrete models for equivalent fractions. In Part 2, you'll learn more about the Rational Number Project (RNP) philosophy for addition, subtraction, multiplications, and division concretely and meaningfully. As the cornerstone of this course, the curriculum will provide you with instructional activities to help students operate with fractions involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Ready to Teach Fractions Part 2 is an ideal "next step" to help students overcome the fear of fractions.

#### Teaching Reading in Mathematics

Teacherline Class

Effective reading skills are critical for student achievement in mathematics. Learn and share strategies to help struggling students sort ideas, understand text organization, connect text to mathematical concepts and operations, and tackle challenging reading content. This course aligns with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Communication Standards.
