The course will introduce in-service teachers to strategies for engaging their students in rigorous mathematical problem-solving experiences
Participants in this workshop will:
- Engage in rigorous mathematical sense-making activities.
- Learn about teaching practices that promote critical thinking and the use of the Standards for Mathematical Practice.
- Practice routines and skills for engaging students in mathematical problem-solving experiences, especially for English language learners (ELL's).
- Review current topics related to mathematics education.
Course OutlineThis course is a workshop delivered by the UCSB Mathematics Project. The UCSB Mathematics Project is a professional development program for in-service K-12 teachers in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. Participants engage in a variety of activities designed to enhance their content knowledge and teaching skills.
Participants will design and deliver mathematics lessons intended for mathematics students in grades K-8. These lessons will include rigorous mathematical investigations and sense-making experiences for students, and participants will orchestrate collaboration and discourse among their students.
INTENDED AUDIENCE: The course is intended for in-service teachers in grades K-8. It is primarily intended for those in years 2-6 of their teaching careers, but others may attend as well.
