Problem Solving Strategies

Participants will solve challenging middle school and high school algebra, geometry, and probability problems and develop a supplemental curriculum outline supporting the development of mathematical approaches to problems. We will discuss how to support students developing high levels of competence and sophistication with a wide range of mathematical approaches from "guess and check" to "consider a simpler problem" to "analyze in terms of parity".

One of the interesting aspects of this course is that we will have a mix that includes graduate students from the Mathematics Learning and Teaching master's program (who are taking MTED 651: Problem Solving Strategies for graduate credit) and teachers from the wider Math Forum community (who are taking it for continuing education credits only). This should provide a nice sized group for interaction, along with useful variety in mathematical approaches and teaching experience.

This moderated course will be led by Stephen Weimar, Director of the Math Forum. It will take place online using Blackboard. The only technical requirements are a web browser and Internet access.

Who: Open to all teachers and tutors working with middle and high school mathematics.

When:

June 22 - September 5, 2015
Registration closes at 5 pm EST on Friday, June 19, 2015. There will be approximately 30 hours of seat-work involved in this course.

Credit: All individuals who successfully complete this pass/fail course will receive a certificate indicating that they have completed 30 hours of professional development. This is equivalent to 3 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Note that CEUs can never be converted to graduate credits for this course.

Cost: $149
