For teachers, curriculum specialists, and instructional resource specialists who want to learn effective methods for teaching mathematics in grades 1-8. Take online or face-to-face.
Gain a wealth of mathematics knowledge and the confidence to connect that knowledge to classroom practice and your students’ understanding of math. Study operations of arithmetic, number theory, algebra, geometry, probability, statistics, and calculus, as well as teaching for all learners and summative and formative assessment. You will soon be using new insights and deep mathematics content to teach mathematics for optimum student success.
This first course integrates the study of geometry and measurement and includes lines, angles, investigations of triangles including sorting, similarity, trigonometry, and Pythagoras' Theorem. We will also investigate quadrilaterals, polygons, area and perimeter. Participants will examine the nature of geometric definitions, and follow a path that explores mathematical explanation, argument, and justification and how these processes connect to geometric proof.
