· Understand how children best learn math
· Develop effective strategies for teaching children mathematics
Fall/ Year 1- BUILDING A FOUNDATION IN ALGEBRA
Marilyn Burns’ Building a Foundation for Algebra targets grades 3-8 teachers to deepen their understanding of critical algebraic mathematical concepts, tying good pedagogy to specific algebra content strands to increase student achievement. The course will address in depth the mathematical content and instructional strategies necessary for developing students’ algebraic thinking. Participants explore what is meant by algebraic thinking and how algebraic concepts can be applied at various grade levels. Building on the instruction they are already providing in arithmetic, teachers learn through a series of problem-solving investigations how to teach algebraic concepts and skills that involve symbols, variables, multiple representations, expressions, equations, graphing, and functions. Complex tasks are incorporated and developed to provide differentiated math tasks to elementary and middle school students.
Fall Saturday Dates: Sept. 25, Oct. 16, Nov. 13, Dec. 11, and Jan. 8
Times: 8:30am - 4:30pm
Every qualifiying participant can receive:
3 P-Credits per year Optional
