Math & Science
There is currently an increased emphasis on relevant and rigorous curriculum, using technology in and out of the classroom, differentiating and supplementing instruction and using open education resources. It is important, therefore, to review and evaluate the variety and effectiveness of on-line tutorials and open education resources in the area of math. In this course, secondary and elementary math teachers will look at Khan Academy from the perspective of both students and teachers. You will also find and evaluate other on-line math tutorial programs. The course will allow you to find relevant open education resources that can supplement any math curriculum. Teachers who desire 400 or 500 level credit, will use these resources to create several units of study that can be individualized or adapted for the classroom. For the 500 level, teachers will also be asked to present your findings to parents, faculty and/or administrators. Text is not required. All readings are online.

When mathematics is taught with real-world lessons, students develop long-term conceptual understanding. The challenge for K-8 teachers is where and how to integrate these lessons. The three pedagogical practices of Problem-based learning, Project-based learning and Inquiry around five foundational skills for mathematics are key concepts. You will learn to create tasks rooted in a real-life connection to these concepts. Research suggests that a strong foundation in these areas is key for math success. $5 material fee due to instructor after registration
