This course will introduce educators to the Number and Operations in Base Ten and Operations and Algebriac Thinking Domains of the Iowa Core Mathematics for grades 3-5 while helping 6th grade educators understand the foundation built in order for students to be successful in the domain of Number Systems. This course will allow educators to make connections between place value understanding and procedural fluency with number sense. Educators will be immersed in the content as learners and develop skill in identifying student misconceptions and providing conceptual experiences to build understanding in these domains. Some work and course materials are stored online so teachers should bring their laptops. A math binder/notebook is required for this class to hold all materials. Educators should be familiar with the Standards for Mathematical Practices before beginning this course.
Educators should be aware this course is closely aligned to courses offered in 2013-2014, Transitioning to Iowa Core Mathematics Grades 3-5 Operations Parts 1 & 2.
