Course Description

This course is closing enrollment as of January 22, 2017. In mathematics, communication skills supplement and enhance student conceptual understanding, computational fluency, and ability to solve problems. According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, “Students who have opportunities, encouragement, and support for speaking, writing, reading, and listening in mathematics classes reap dual benefits: they communicate to learn mathematics, and they learn to communicate mathematically.” The 8 Standards for Mathematical Practice contained within the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) describe the processes and proficiencies that students should develop in age-appropriate progression throughout the math curriculum. Yet teaching these skills can be difficult. What does it mean to communicate mathematically? What do the standards say we should be teaching? And how can we teach those skills to all of our math students? The... This course is closing enrollment as of January 22, 2017.

According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, “Students who have opportunities, encouragement, and support for speaking, writing, reading, and listening in mathematics classes reap dual benefits: they communicate to learn mathematics, and they learn to communicate mathematically.” The 8 Standards for Mathematical Practice contained within the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) describe the processes and proficiencies that students should develop in age-appropriate progression throughout the math curriculum. Yet teaching these skills can be difficult. What does it mean to communicate mathematically? What do the standards say we should be teaching? And how can we teach those skills to all of our math students? The Communicating in Math Exploration focuses on reviewing the standards and creating a lesson plan that integrates a Mathematical Practice, such as MP3---constructing viable arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others. This 6 week Exploration is classroom embedded professional learning that you will engage in independently and through discussions with your peers in the forums. There are 3 discussion prompts , 1 End of Exploration Self Assessment and 1 Survey required to complete this course.
