**Developing Mathematical Practices for Number, Operations and**Algebraic Reasoning: Grades K -5 Developed by Dr. Jenny K. Tsankova with support from Teachers21 and the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education**Goals of the Course**• Understand and recognize the eight Standards of Mathematical Practices (MP) in the Common Core Standards for Mathematics • Engage deeper into unpacking MP 1, 2 and 7 • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them • Reason abstractly • Look for and make use of structure • Recognize the importance of planning a sequence of rich tasks and problems that exemplify the MP on the basis of • Sound pedagogical content knowledge • Rich toolkit of problem solving strategies • Supporting students in their reasoning Dr. Jenny K. Tsankova**Goals of the Course Cont.**• See coherence in connections within and across grades in developing understanding of key mathematical ideas • Rejuvenate your enthusiasm in solving rich tasks and problems • Discuss issues of mathematics education in the course Blog, reflect, ask questions, present using a document projector camera and MimioTeach interactive white board • Grow in confidence as a mathematics educator! Dr. Jenny K. Tsankova**Is this course for Me?**• Are you an elementary teacher? • Are you a paraprofessional in elementary school? • Are you a special educator in elementary or middle school? • Are you a math coach, math specialist, curriculum specialist at the elementary level? If you answered “YES” to any of the above, then this course is for you! Dr. Jenny K. Tsankova**What will I do in the Course?**• Unpack MP and prepare to apply them in your classroom • Discuss written vignettes from students’ discourse on solving problems • Watch and analyze children’s understanding in video clips of clinical interviews with elementary students • Experience contagious problem solving you would love to try with your students Dr. Jenny K. Tsankova**What will I do in the Course? (Cont.)**• Draw, model, show variety of representations Dr. Jenny K. Tsankova**What will I do in the Course? (Cont.)**• Learn about types of word problems and create word problems Dr. Jenny K. Tsankova**What will I do in the Course? (Cont.)**• Analyze student work Dr. Jenny K. Tsankova**What will I do in the Course? (Cont.)**• Count like a kindergartener – with pizazz! • Use models to decompose and compose numbers to add and subtract with master and flexibility • Play with strategies of whole number computations and the mathematical ideas behind them, for example, walk like an Egyptian (multiply like an Egyptian) Dr. Jenny K. Tsankova**What will I do in the Course? (Cont.)**• Reveal the secrets of multiplication and division of fractions and do it with gusto! • Get fascinated how third graders can easily solve one and two-step linear equations • Race for Order of Operations, play math games, discover the “math magic” of number tricks Dr. Jenny K. Tsankova**What will I do in the Course? (Cont.)**• Enjoy working with colleagues; • Benefit from being supported in your reasoning by a facilitator and enrich your toolkit of strategies as a facilitator yourself. Dr. Jenny K. Tsankova**What will I do in the Course? (Cont.)**• Discover that the math you do and the concepts you discuss actually “make” your dinner table!!! Dr. Jenny K.
