Achieving Learning Goals through Accomplished Mathematics Instruction - 45hr

MATH512

This research-based course provides guidance on how to examine your math instruction and its impact on student learning. Through the lens of professional teaching standards, you will set learning goals for your math lessons, determine how different types of goals connect, and define how students will show evidence of achievement within those goals. This course is facilitated by National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) in mathematics. Note: Course 1 is helpful, but not a required precursor for Course 2: Guiding Student Learning Through Accomplished Mathematics Instruction.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.
Points/Credit Hours: 45 recertification points (3 graduate credits available for extra cost after start of course-enrollment instructions will be sent to you by the facilitator) graduate credit - not through James Madison University

Audience: Math Teachers, Grades 6-12

Developing Algebraic Thinking in Grades 3-5 - 30hr

MATH270

Break down your math lessons to reexamine the way you teach algebra. In this course, you become the student, solving mathematical problems in order to better understand how you can use algebra to identify patterns, analyze situations, and practice representing relationships with mathematical models. As part of the course assignments, you will practice your newly developed strategies on 3-5 grade students, monitor their learning process, and assess their understanding of algebra. Peer discussions will help you reflect and use insightful feedback to improve your teaching practice.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.

Classroom Link-Access to students recommended. PBS Classroom Link courses ask learners to implement lessons with their class or with a small group of students (options for learners without access to students are available).

Points/Credit Hours: 30 recertification points (2 graduate credits available for extra cost after start of course-enrollment instructions will be sent to you by the facilitator) graduate credit - not through James Madison University

Guiding Student Learning Through Accomplished Mathematics Instruction - 45hr

MATH517

"This course is ideal for 6th to 12th grade teachers looking to streamline their math instructional goals. This course will explore key aspects of teaching practices, such as: 1. A ""focal"" student approach 2. A classroom culture focused on mathematics learning 3. A closer alignment of goals and instructional methods, and 4. Checking for student understanding during lessons. You will learn how to effectively guide student learning, based on results from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards' performance assessment of mathematics teachers.

Note: Course 1 (MATH512: Achieving Learning Goals through Accomplished Mathematics Instruction) will be a helpful, but not required, precursor for this course. This course is facilitated by National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) in mathematics.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.

Teaching Math (Grades K-2): A Special Collection from Annenberg Learner- 45hr

MATH522

Explore process standards outlined by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and develop lessons around them to help K-2 students establish a strong understanding of math concepts and master foundational mathematical thinking. In this course, you will: 

• Review the key NCTM process standards in dedicated sessions for Communication, Problem Solving, Reasoning and Proof, Representation, and Connections, E.g., in the Communication session, learners explore how effective communication can help all learners make sense of mathematics. Learn how to teach students to use oral communication, invented and traditional symbols, movement, pictures, number sentences, and more to share mathematical thinking and express understanding of math concepts. 

• Explore effective ways to apply the standards in classroom instruction and integrate their use with content goals

• Develop lesson plans around NCTM standards that strengthen instruction and help students better understand mathematics

 

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.
