Course Description

While mathematicians describe mathematics as playful, beautiful, creative, and captivating, many students describe math class as boring, stressful, useless, and humiliating. This course reflects the years of time spent with highly skilled math teachers in a diverse range of settings and grades. It is filled with new thinking strategies from vibrant classrooms, covering practical teaching techniques to try in your own classroom. These strategies will stimulate students to connect ideas, with rich tasks that encourage students to wonder, generalize, conjecture, and persevere, and collaborate. The course aims to develop instructional techniques that will make the math classes we teach so much better than the math classes we took.
