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.

Mathematics Illuminated: A Special Collection from Annenberg Learner - 45hr

MATH527

This course reaches beyond formulas and computations to explore the math of patterns, symmetry, relationships, multiple dimensions, and more, all the while exploring the ever-evolving field of mathematics. The course approaches mathematics as a means to greater understanding of the power of math in everyday life, rather than as a successive set of skills to be mastered. You will research and explore the mathematical concepts and resources that meet your curriculum and student learning needs from among the rich resources at the Annenberg Learner Mathematics Illuminated website. This course will also engage you in learning more about the mathematics process standards from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. By the end of this course, you will have developed an instructional unit based on your students' learning needs and your current mathematics curriculum.

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