In This Course, Participants…

  • explore ways to create a classroom community that supports math learning, encourages productive struggle, and frames mistakes as important learning opportunities
  • consider ways to ensure that students are regularly sharing, comparing, and making connections to others’ ideas
  • focus on enacting the CCSS Mathematical Practices to ensure that students become mathematically proficient
  • engage in mathematics
  • analyze classroom videos, readings, and interactive demonstrations
  • analyze questions and instructional moves that are productive and extend, deepen, and invite math reasoning
  • examine ways to make students’ thinking and learning visible, and to use assessment to guide instruction and learning

Through this course I have learned how important it is to understand what I am seeing and hearing—in terms of my students’ understandings and misunderstandings about the math at hand.
