Upcoming Events

Northern Idaho Kyozai Kenkyu: A subject study on fractions (1 credit)

Class may be attended virtually or in-person at the University of Idaho Coeur d'Alene. Sessions will be held 4-8 p.m. on Tuesdays, Dec. 3, 2019, and Jan. 14 & 21, Feb. 4 & 18, 2020.

The Idaho Regional Mathematics Center at the University of Idaho Coeur d’Alene will be offering a Kyozai-Kenkyu (subject study) on the topic of fractions for grades three through five. This will be an opportunity to engage in a deep exploration of mathematical structures, models, progressions, and general content related to standards surrounding fractions. Educators can choose to participate in person at the University of Idaho Coeur d’Alene campus or virtually.

Participants will be researching areas of this topic and will be responsible for sharing their findings with others. Through this process we will construct a framework for developing (and evaluating) instructional materials. Because of the collaborative nature of this work, we ask that if you are interested in joining the Kyozai-Kenkyu that you agree to attend every meeting either in person or virtually.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Abe Wallin for more information.

Course materials will be provided. One (1) Continuing Education credit is available. You will pay the $60 fee on the last day of class.

There are no meals provided.

Teaching Mathematical Thinking for Instructional Leaders (3 credits)

This course provides an opportunity for instructional leaders to study fundamental mathematical theory underlying the content area of number and operation and student reasoning of number and operation topics within a framework of a student-centered, problem-based classroom. Topics will highlight the intersection of research-based pedagogy, content understanding, and assessment of student needs developed through a lens of examining instructional leaders’ work in supporting classroom teachers. Specific focal areas will involve classroom observation protocols, evaluation instruments, instructional coaching techniques, attending to student thinking and reasoning through the use of discourse and questioning, professional noticing, and the effective us of various mathematical tools.

There is a mandatory $180 fee associated with the TMT course. It provides course materials and three continuing education credits. You will pay the fee on the last day of class.

There are no meals provided. Bring a lunch so that we can take a quick break and finish earlier than our scheduled release time.

Schedule

Dates: Thursdays 4-8 p.m., Jan. 23, 30, Feb. 6, 13, 20, March 5, and Saturdays, 8:30-5 p.m. Feb. 1, 27, 2020.

Teaching Mathematical Thinking (3 credits)

The Teaching Mathematical Thinking (TMT) is a course that 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 provides course materials and three Continuing Education credits. You will pay the fee on the last day of class.

There are no meals provided. Bring a lunch so that we can take a quick break and finish earlier than our scheduled release time.
