Explore major themes in the field of mathematics, from mankind's earliest study of prime numbers to the cutting edge mathematics used to reveal the shape of the universe. Rather than a series of problems to be solved, mathematics is presented as play we engage in to answer deep questions that are relevant in our world today. Mathematics also provides us with a powerful language for uncovering and describing phenomena in the world around us. The groundbreaking videos, interactive web exploration, text materials, and group activities designed for secondary level mathematics teachers reveal the secrets and hidden delights of the ever-evolving world of mathematics.
This workshop will be offered for 3.0 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 13 half hour video sessions plus support materials, website interactives, and wrap-around activities totaling at least an additional 24 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.
