Achieving Learning Goals through Accomplished Mathematics Instruction - 45hr

MATH512

This research-based course draws upon data from NBPTS’ performance assessment of mathematics teachers. Examine how your practice impacts student learning through the lens of professional teaching standards. Identify learning goals for your lessons, determine how different types of goals connect, and define how students will show evidence of achievement of those goals. In this course, you'll look at what kinds of learning goals you have for a lesson, how those different types of goals connect with each other, and how you will show evidence of student achievement of those goals. Note: Course 1 is a helpful, but not required precursor for Course 2: Guiding Student Learning (available soon). This course is facilitated by National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) in mathematics.

Integrating Technology Into The Middle School Mathematics Curriculum - 30hr

AKMATH360

The teaching of Math has evolved with an emphasis on problem solving throughout the curriculum. Through solving real-world dilemmas students are engaged in not only applying Math facts, skills and concepts, but in generating unique solutions for practical problems. While manipulatives have been the focus of this kind of hands-on learning, technology offers new and exciting ways to bring Math alive for students. Technology and Math are a dynamic combination, and through this course you will explore the strategies, resources and possibilities for middle school teachers to integrate them across the curriculum.

Points/Credit Hours: 30 recertification points (0 graduate credits)

Audience: Middle School Math Teachers
