One of the 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, Number and Operations examines the three main categories in this content strand: understanding numbers, representations, relationships, and number systems; the meanings of operations and relationships among those operations; and reasonable estimation and fluent computation.
In this course, you will explore the real number system, place value, the behavior of zero and infinity, meanings and models of basic operations, percentages, and modeling operations with fractions. It also examines Basic Number Theory topics, such as factors and multiples, as well as divisibility tests, at both practical and abstract levels.
This workshop will be offered for 2.5 CEUs. Participants will be enrolled in RamCT 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 RamCT login soon after registration.
