Teaching Math
Grades 9-12

This course shows teachers how to develop effective ways to use the five National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Process Standards to teach mathematics to all students at the 9-12 level.
Session 1:
The Process Standards

This session introduces the five process standards and illustrates ways to put these standards together. You will learn to plan classes that will help students see mathematics as an integrated whole that is useful for solving problems.
Session 2:
Communication

This session illustrates methods for facilitating classroom conversations to optimize mathematical discourse and help students learn to read and write about mathematics.
Session 3:
Problem Solving

This session concentrates on ways to choose problems to introduce new mathematical concepts and to help students learn to pose and solve problems and self-monitor their problem solving processes.
Session 4:
Reasoning and Proof

This session shows teachers how to help students reason about a problem and then extend what they already know so they can make a conjecture and provide a convincing argument as to why their conjecture is or is not true.
Session 5:
Representation

This session examines particular mathematical problems and shows how different representations of a situation can highlight different characteristics of a problem.
Session 6:
Connections

This session focuses on problems that connect mathematical disciplines as well as problems from disciplines outside mathematics.
