Teaching Mathematical Thinking (3 credits)

The Teaching Mathematical Thinking (TMT) course fulfills the 3-credit MTI course requirement for Idaho teachers. This course provides an opportunity to study fundamental mathematical theory underlying the content area of numbers and operations and student reasoning of numbers and operations topics within a framework of a student-centered, problem-based classroom. Topics will include number systems, ways of representing numbers, meanings of operations and how they relate to one another and computation within the number system as a foundation for algebra. Pedagogical topics will focus on attending to student thinking and reasoning through the use of discourse and questioning, professional noticing and the effective use of manipulatives or other mathematical tools.

There is a mandatory $180 fee associated with the TMT course. It covers course materials and three Continuing Education credits. More information will be announced at registration.
