Uses the theme as a tool for learning ways to imbed math with other subject areas in the classroom. Participants will also learn to teach and assess their students' math understanding using a variety of approaches. Core learning will also address standardized test expectations for all grade levels. Focuses on the use of many mathematical manipulatives as a way to enhance, assess and individualize any existing curricula to meet each student's level of mathematical understanding. Nobody is put "on the spot" to demonstrate their current mathematical knowledge during this course, so math expert or not, this course will offer each person new ideas and techniques and is guaranteed to be fun for all.
This course is available under credit or clock hours. Clock hours are available under CEU 0405.
