ENROLLMENT OPENS May 16, 2021 – STREAM: Measurement (K-3) (June 6 – 27, 2021)

This module focuses on the tools and processes of measurement, K-2 learning progressions related to measurement, and foundational ideas that promote a deeper understanding of measurement concepts. Specific goals and activities include the following:

  • Developing enduring understandings of measurement attributes, processes, and tools.
  • Explore relationships among units, attributes, and measures within a system of measurement.
  • Engage in authentic problem solving using tools that can be applied in the classroom.

ENROLLMENT OPENS May 16, 2021 – STREAM: Fraction Models & Operations (June 6-27, 2021)

This course examines learning progressions and models related to operations on fractions. Another module, Developing Fraction Concepts 3-5, explores the meaning of “fraction” and fundamental concepts of equivalence and comparison. This module goes a step further to examine conceptual understanding of fraction operations and the models used to develop these concepts.  Specific goals and activities include the following:  

  • Examine different types of conceptual models used to represent fraction operations.
  • Discover how learning progression guide students’ developing knowledge of fraction operations in grades 3-5.
  • Explore and apply fraction operations in real-world contexts.
