Effective Practices for Advancing the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics: Developing Students’ Mathematical Sense-Making       
Recent math reform efforts emphasize the importance of developing students' conceptual understanding over teaching procedures for students to memorize. For many teachers, this is a shift in practice because their own experiences in mathematics have been with the latter. In this course we will draw upon some of the leading experts in the field to explore how we can develop students' understanding in the domains of counting and cardinality, geometry, number and operations in base ten, algebraic reasoning, measurement, and functions. In each class session, we will explore one or more domains in depth as we engage in mathematical tasks and analyze student thinking through video and print cases.
Cost: $498
This course meets online, biweekly on Tuesdays from 6:30-8:30pm ET starting on January 16.

Supporting the Range of Learners In Mathematics Classrooms
Every teacher wants each student to achieve to the highest levels. And yet - knowing how to do this can feel hard, overwhelming, and/or unclear. To make diverse classrooms feel more manageable and productive, this course will provide concrete methods and strategies teachers can use in classrooms to support all students. Students will engage in interesting mathematics every session; leave each session with something concrete to try in your classroom; read and analyze current research on supporting diverse learners; research your own students through case work and discussions with colleagues; and have new thought partners and colleagues who will be invested in students’ success.
Cost: $498
This course meets online, biweekly on Thursdays from 6:30-8:30pm ET starting on January 18.
