The Iowa Core Mathematics Standards expects mathematically proficient geometry students to experiment, explain, prove, visualize, understand, derive, and translate between representations. Students are expected to demonstrate geometric habits of mind and be proficient in the standards of mathematical practice. This expanded view of student proficiencies will require that teachers have greater flexibility and deeper content knowledge. Teachers will need to employ a greater variety of teaching strategies and weave deep mathematical content and mathematical habits of mind into a well orchestrated whole.
This institute will provide teachers with resources and support in making the needed enhancements and changes in instruction in order to implement the Iowa Core Mathematics Standards for Geometry.
Registration for this course will close on 6/13/14. Registrations after that date will be charged a $25 late fee.
