CURI 6504 SUNY Empire State College (formerly EDU 661116)
Course dates 7/18/22-9/23/22
This course is intended to help those who teach mathematics in Grades 3-5 understand the mathematical content, how mathematical ideas develop, and how to implement successful teaching practices that make it more likely for students to grasp and be comfortable with mathematics. The course includes research findings on which the teaching of solid mathematics is based. It highlights teacher practices that researchers found to be associated with greater learning of mathematics and that teachers found to be relevant and vital for teaching mathematics in all grades K-12 with a focus on grades 3-5.

The course aligns the Ten Principles of Thinking Mathematics, the NYS P-12 Learning Standards for Mathematics, the Standards of Mathematical Practice and the National Research Council's Strands of Mathematical Proficiency, all vital frameworks for teaching mathematics. The research behind these principles is explained with models and explanations from within multiplicative structures and discusses the implications for teaching multiplication and division which is the essence of the work of Grades 3-5.

Registration deadline is 7/13/22 and course runs 10 weeks. Participants should log in daily to review and check assignments.
