EDU 942 Common Core Elementary Math
Facilitates an understanding of how the mathematical practices and standards of the National Common Core and PA Core impact the design and delivery of math instruction at the elementary level. Investigates the use of formative and summative assignments to personalize instruction and deliver meaningful interventions.
This course will allow elementary math educators to construct a personalized understanding of how the mathematical practices and standards of the National Common Core and PA Core will impact the manner in which they design and deliver math instruction, and assess student learning. Key components of this course are: real-life problem solving, critical thinking skills, assessment choices, interventions, and the meaningful application of technology.
*Participants in this course will have several mandatory, synchronous, video conference sessions. Information regarding these can be found on each course registration page.

The instructor met us where we were at and tried to stretch us individually. The value of the Mathematical Practice in math education was stressed and we were encouraged to think more deeply about why we do what we do.R.S., Math Teacher
It made me come up with lessons that I would not have created. I already tried some of them and had success already!!!!M.S., Elementary Teacher
I liked creating tasks that stretch student thinking and learning.M.H., Elementary Teacher
This course provided meaningful resources to enhance my math teaching.M.H., Elementary Teacher
This was a great course and I look forward to applying the knowledge I learned to my students this year.M.B., Elementary Teacher
It will definitely change the way the I think about my instructionS.R., Math Teacher
With the Common Core being more rigorous and teachers, students, and parents don't understand it, I feel this class was very beneficial.D.N., Elementary Teacher
I really enjoyed this course and got some valuable information to take to my classroom.S.R., Math Teacher
It will help me focus on engaging students in the mathematical practices and striving to be more student-centered.R.S., Math Teacher
The research paper was hugely valuable. I felt like I was exposed to scholarly journals to really read relevant research about best practices instead of looking only to popular culture and social media.R.S., Math Teacher
