Who is invited? This PD course is designed for teachers of mathematics intervention classes in grades 5-7. Mathematics leaders/coaches are also welcome. Sign up with colleagues or on your own!
Why focus on fractions? Fractions is a high-priority topic for mathematics intervention classes. Struggling learners often lack understanding of foundational fraction concepts and this impacts their success in the middle grades. The course will focus on ways to build students’ understanding of foundational topics, such as equivalence, and of fraction operations.
Blended Format: 3 face-to-face sessions and 5 online sessions (each 4 weeks long to allow time to apply ideas with students).
PD Hours/PDPs: 67.5
Graduate Credit Option: Participants may enroll for 3 graduate credits for an additional cost.
If you are interested in hosting the course in your school/district, please email Amy Brodesky at firstname.lastname@example.org
