One of five Learning Math courses for elementary and middle school teachers which are organized around the content standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Learning Math: Geometry, introduces geometric reasoning as a method for problem-solving and looks at important geometric ideas, such as symmetry, similarity, and trigonometry.
Participants will begin to explore the basis of formal mathematical proofs and solid geometry. The course material progresses from more visual, intuitive ways of solving problems to more formal explorations of geometric ideas, properties, and proofs.
This workshop will be offered for 2.5 CEUs. Participants will be enrolled in Canvas and access the course materials through this gateway site. They will be expected to engage with all the course materials including 10 web-based sessions integrating one half hour of video with online problems, support materials, website interactives, and wrap-around activities for a total of at least 25 hours, but will not be required to submit homework, papers, projects, etc.
A non-graded discussion forum will be available to participants as an outlet for ideas and peer interaction. A participant survey/open-ended test questions/evaluation form will serve as the end point of the noncredit course and will document participation. Once the participant has completed the survey/test form, they will notify the course monitor who will review and send a certificate documenting the CEUs.
Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
There is no refund available for this noncredit course once the registration is processed. Students will receive an email containing their Canvas login information soon after registration.
