Routines for Mathematical Reasoning
Routines help us develop healthy daily habits, math classrooms establish routines for lectures and homework, fewer offer specific daily routines to help students think, communicate, and reason like mathematicians. If your students struggle to get started on mathematical tasks or if they rely on teacher examples in order to 'do problems', this course offers an exciting set of practices to foster confident mathematical thinking. This fully online course introduces teachers to six instructional routines designed to engage students in complex mathematical reasoning. Participants in this course will develop a series of reasoning routines for immediate use in their classrooms. Drawing on instructional principles that center student voice and agency, this course promotes mathematical thinking habits that support the Common Core Mathematical Practices.
NOTE: Required book must be acquired separately.
