What is Mathematical Thinking and How Do You Teach It?

Synchronous sessions will be scheduled based on participants' availability and will be recorded for those who are unable to attend. The course will run for six weeks. It will open on June 8, 2020 and close on July 23, 2020.

Participants will develop a deep understanding of what it means to think and reason mathematically. They will learn three different avenues of mathematical thinking that productive math doers bring to bear when making sense of and persevering through problems. Participants will develop each avenue of thinking through a series of targeted math activities and identify evidence of mathematical thinking in other’s mathematical work. In addition, participants will learn how to develop these avenues of thinking in their students. They will leave this course with the knowledge and strategies they need to ensure their students develop as powerful mathematical thinkers.

Goals:
  • Know what mathematical thinking is
  • Understand Quantitative Reasoning
  • Be able to help students develop quantitative reasoning
  • Understand Structural Thinking
  • Be able to help students develop structural thinking
  • Understand Repeated Reasoning
  • Be able to help students develop repeated reasoning 
Materials:  All students must have a copy of Routines for Reasoning by Kelemanik, Lucenta & Creighton.  It is currently available through Amazon and Heinemann.

Graduate Credit: Participants may choose to apply for 2 graduate credits for an additional fee of $250 payable to Worcester State University.

Target Audience: Grade Level 4 - 9

This course will support you as you integrate 21st Century Digital Storytelling pedagogy into a curriculum unit of study. While digital storytelling is often thought of as a literacy activity, it should also be seen as a way to demonstrate understanding in any content area. As the Common Core focuses more on informational texts, digital storytelling allows students an accessible means to present their learning.

“..students who participate in the creation of digital stories may develop enhanced communications skills by learning to organize their ideas, ask questions, express opinions, and construct narratives. It also can help students as they learn to create stories for an audience, and present their ideas and knowledge in an individual and meaningful way."

This course is designed to introduce different ways students can share their learning through technology. Participants will reshape an existing lesson, or build a new one, to include these tools to enhance your teaching and/or your students’ learning. Activities include readings and/or videos, with periods for discussion and reflection. Using Backwards Design theory and a Constructivist approach, you will design a lesson that supports the curriculum by creating a digital storytelling project experience for your students.


Audience: K - 12 Classroom teachers and technology specialists

Credit Option: At the first class, participants may choose to register for 2 graduate credits through Worcester State University for an additional fee of $250 payable to WSU. All participants, including those who do not opt for graduate credit, will receive a certificate documenting the number of course hours attended.
