GE 6093 - Teaching Math for Success in the 21st Century Elementary Classroom Policy


In the 21st century, students not only need an in-depth understanding of mathematics but an enthusiasm for using math to innovate and solve real world problems. This course is designed to provide teachers opportunities to deepen their own understanding while exploring the research regarding how students develop the practices necessary to use mathematics flexibly. Students will examine both the rationale and intentions of the Common Core Standards as well as NCTM's Principles and Standards as a foundation for our work.  Translating their learning into an instructional planning process that purposefully connects the practice and content standards to ensure mathematical reasoning and communication are a means for developing mathematical understanding as well as sharing solutions is the overarching goal. Formative assessment techniques, models for differentiation, and  various practices for promoting thoughtful discourse will be studied throughout to ensure that teachers gain the skills necessary to make mathematical understanding accessible to all learners in their communities.
