During this course, you will collaborate with colleagues to develop deepened understanding of mathematically productive teaching practices that align with research about how students learn mathematics. You will learn to analyze and enhance the extent to which your teaching practices foster equitable, status-free, and mathematically productive teacher and student collaboration.
You will learn to implement instructional tools, strategies and structures that support the development of a carefully crafted, status-free mathematical culture of effort and growth in which every student engages continuously in mathematical sense making, conjecturing, justifying, and generalizing (thus developing powerful mathematical habits of mind and internalization of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice) every student develops a growth mindset, intellectual autonomy, and self-efficacy as a mathematician; all students collaborate and interact in ways that show accountability to the mathematics, to learning, and to each other.
