The course examines the three main categories in the subject-area content strand of Principles and Standards of School Mathematics: understanding numbers, representations, relationships, and number systems; the meanings of operations and relationships among those operations; and reasonable estimation and fluent computation. The course covers the real number system, place value, the behavior of zero and infinity, meanings and models of basic operations, percentages, and modeling operations with fractions, often with the aid of concrete, physical models that enhance understanding. It also examines Basic Number Theory topics, such as factors and multiples, as well as divisibility tests, at both practical and abstract levels. The course consists of ten sessions, the last of which participants choose their specific grade level to explore ways to apply the concepts of number and operations they have learned during the course in their own classroom.

The Missing Link: Essential Concepts for Middle School Math Teachers Enroll

EDUX 7215.  This course for middle school math teachers covers essential topics missed in most U.S. math curricula. The workshop focuses on four concepts that have been identified by TIMSS (the Third International Mathematics and Science Study) as crucial to middle school students' future success. The workshop seeks to help participants better understand the content of these math topics through demonstration of instructional techniques that show them how to involve their students in their own learning. Master Teacher Jan Robinson, from the First in the World Consortium, leads the teacher-learners through the “discovery” session of each topic as they investigate a series of problem-based activities, customize and expand upon the lessons in their own classrooms, and then return with samples of their students’ work. In the “practice” sessions, teacher-learners report on their experiences, evaluate the student work, and develop new instructional and assessment techniques.
