MTH 515 Measurement & Geometry, K-5

Covering the Van Hiele levels of geometric thought and focusing on shapes and properties, transformations, location and visualization, as well as measurement concepts and skills, this course allows teachers to develop a profound understanding of key mathematical concepts as outlined in the NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. Participants engage in hands-on problem-solving activities that allow them to apply new understanding to their instructional planning and decision making.

Participants engage in hands-on problem-solving activities that allow them to apply new understanding to their instructional planning and decision making. 

COURSE OUTCOMES 

Participants will be able to: 

• Apply effective problem-solving strategies to real-world problems and situations 

• Deepen understanding of mathematical concepts such as length, area, volume, angles and coordinate geometry 

• Apply instructional strategies that help develop geometric thinking 

MTH 525 Algebra, K-5

This course focuses on developing algebraic thinking, which includes studying patterns and functions, understanding the structure of the number system, using symbolism meaningfully and using mathematical modeling to solve problems. Participants study many common misconceptions about the learning of algebra to better understand the potential gaps in students’ understanding.
