This 3-credit graduate course explores the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) and their role in improving instruction and student understanding in primary-level classrooms. How can teachers present opportunities for students to make sense of and make connections between counting, operations, symbolic notation and quantitative relationships? How can teachers develop a culture of learning where flexible thinking and sense making are at the core of all learning? How can teachers encourage students to extend and generalize the relationship they are discovering? What role do the Standards for Mathematical Practice have in deepening student understanding? How can assessment be used to guide instruction and support student understanding?
During this 3-credit course teachers will...
Ongoing Formative Assessment Project
Due Date: Each class
Each week you will be required to collect and analyze evidence of student understanding for at least 3 students using specific tasks developed or shared during class.
Due Date: Each Class
Each class you will be required to reflect on specific questions or prompts provided during class. Entries will be shared with others during class.
Due Date: Sign up during first class
Design, implement, and present to colleagues a set of related problems that have specific focus and encourage relational thinking.
