Professional Development Program
Learning Math Together
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".
Who: Open to all teachers and tutors working with middle and high school mathematics.
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).
