Understanding Geometry: Teaching from a Student Centered Perspective
February 13, 2017 - May 7, 2017
Target Audience: PreK- 8th grade
Dates of Course: February 13, 2017 - May 7, 2017 Description: This online course is designed to aid teachers in reflecting on the major ideas of K-8 geometry, examining how students develop those ideas, and how they are connected across domains and grade levels. Student achievement and improvement are realized over time. The process begins with the early grades, PreK-2 and is further developed throughout elementary and middle school. In order to improve student achievement at all grade levels, in-depth mathematical understanding (of concepts, not algorithms) is crucial. Geometric concepts should begin early in students’ learning as there are connections with geometry found in measurement, algebra, proportional reasoning, and fractions. Each session takes an in depth look at different concepts in geometry. Participants will examine the State Standards as they relate to the geometric concepts and how it will impact their teaching.
