Effective Practices for Advancing the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics (K-12): Developing Students’ Mathematical Sense-Making. (X.MTHED-404DV)

Back by popular demand with 9 completely new sessions. Join us as we take a deep dive into teaching practices that support students’ mathematical sense-making.

This primarily synchronous online course is designed to connect educators from across the country and around the world to learn from some of the educational leaders in the Math/Twitter/Blogosphere (#MTBoS). Each class session will feature a different lead instructor who will guide us in exploring an effective practice for advancing the teaching and learning of mathematics. During these sessions participants will work collaboratively on mathematical tasks, analyze student thinking, explore instructional methodologies, and prepare to apply their new learning within their own practice.

Registrations are accepted on a rolling basis until program is full. Last year the course filled up in just a few weeks so you are encouraged to register early.

The final registration deadline is December 19, 2017.

Supporting the Range of Learners in Mathematics Classrooms (X.METHED-413)

This course features synchronous and asynchronous online work designed to connect educators around the country and world who are dedicated to the learning of all students. The course will provide concrete methods and strategies teachers can use in classrooms to appropriately support and challenge each student. Participants will engage in interesting mathematics every session; leave each class with an idea to try in their classroom; read and analyze current research on supporting diverse learners; research their own students through case work and discussions with colleagues; and have new thought partners invested in students’ success.

Registrations are accepted on a rolling basis until program is full. Last year the course filled up in just a few weeks so you are encouraged to register early.
