In This Course, Participants…

  • learn about the Mathematical Practices in the Common Core and what they look like in elementary classrooms
  • do mathematics together to explore Math Practices 1, 3, 5, and 6
  • investigate print and video examples of students engaged in Math Practices 1, 3, 5, and 6 as they work on Investigations activities
  • become familiar with the teacher supports for these Math Practices in Investigations 3, including the Math Practice Essays, Math Practice Notes, and assessments for the Math Practices

I know my instruction will be stronger now that my understanding of the math practices has deepened.
