This course will focus primarily on fractional reasoning. The use of routines and mathematical language in the elementary grades, while focusing on the development of tools, strategies and curriculum to best reach all students at the elementary school level. Each day there will be elementary school topics which will be focused on. Participants will learn about patterns and routines to introduce topics and how patterns and techniques learned in Elementary Grades Math Lab can be used to enhance the learning outcomes of students.
K-5 math teachers
To provide teachers with strategies on how to create lesson plans to teach a unit on fractional reasoning using concrete models, pictorial models and abstract models.
Course Objectives: Students will be able to recognize the ways of knowing in teaching a given unit in the area of fractional reasoning and create lessons using the strategies and the structure of a math class that have been taught in this 2 day workshop.
