This three-day course focuses on Number and Operations in Base Ten for students in grades K–5. The emphasis of this course is on developing a foundation of understanding of multiplication and division, and on extending understanding of place value with whole numbers to decimals. Experiences and discussions help participants discern the role that place-value understanding and properties of operations.
Course 1 of 2. This two-day course focuses on the priority domain of Number and Operations–Fractions for students in Grades 3-5. The emphasis of the course is on building understanding of fractions as numbers and connections between whole number knowledge and fraction knowledge. The strategies and foundation developed in this course are prerequisites for the further work with fraction computation that is developed in Course 2, Making Sense of Fraction Computation.
Course 2 of 2. This two-day course focuses on the priority domain of Number and Operations–Fractions for students in Grades 3-5. The emphasis of the course is on building understanding of fraction computation. In this course, participants learn to build on students’ understanding of whole number operations to make sense of fraction computation. Strategies that support the development of fraction operation sense are highlighted.
This two-day course explores proportionality, proportional relationships, and proportional reasoning, acknowledging that the ability to reason proportionally is at the forefront of the middle school mathematics curriculum. The course supports teachers with strategies to help make this content accessible to all students.
This course focuses on how students develop algebraic reasoning and an understanding of the different representations for functions. Teachers and coaches explore the progression of middle school content that develops an understanding of expressions, equations, and functions and prepares students for success in high school and beyond.
This two-day course focuses on the conceptual aspects of Algebra and Functions for students in high school with an emphasis on strategies and tools to help leverage students’ ways of thinking so they can approach any type of function, work with it, and understand how it behaves.
