ENROLLMENT OPENS May 15, 2022 – STREAM: Measurement (K-3) (Jun. 5 – Jun. 26, 2022)

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 Apr. 17, 2022 – STREAM: Ratios & Proportions (5-8) (May 1- 22, 2022)

This module explores how a solid understanding of fraction concepts lays the foundation for students to successfully interpret, apply, and manipulate ratios and proportions. Specific goals and activities include the following:

  • Recognize how learning progressions based on fraction knowledge prepare students for conceptual work with ratios and proportions.
  • Solve fraction, ratio, and proportion problems in multiple ways.
  • Develop an awareness of student misconceptions related to fraction, ratio, and proportion and examine teacher strategies to resolve these misconceptions.

ENROLLMENT OPENS Mar. 13, 2022 – STREAM: Geometric Thinking K-3 (Apr. 3 – 24, 2022)

This 3-week module investigates conceptually related and interdependent ideas about geometric shapes, geometric structure, and spatial relationships. Geometry is a particularly relevant area of mathematics for young children, who are naturally curious about their physical world. Participants will: examine properties and categorization of two-dimensional shapes; explore composition and decomposition of geometric shapes; develop deeper understanding of spatial relations and spatial structuring.

ENROLLMENT OPENS Feb. 13, 2022 – STREAM: Statistical Inferences HS (Mar. 6-27, 2022)

Statistics and Probability do not appear as stand-alone topics in Montana’s Content Standards. These concepts are dispersed throughout all high school mathematics courses with an emphasis on informed decision making. The power of statistics and probability to understand the world we live in is some of the most applicable knowledge students can acquire in our classrooms.

ENROLLMENT OPENS Dec. 12, 2021 – STREAM: Developing Fraction Sense (3-5) (Jan. 9 – Jan. 30, 2022)

This module examines learning progressions related to fractions with a focus on foundational ideas that promote fraction sense and understanding. Specific goals and activities include the following:

  • Examine ways to develop “fraction sense.”
  • Discover how learning progressions for K-2 geometry support the development of fraction knowledge in grades 3-5.
  • Explore fraction equivalence and comparing and ordering fractions using a variety of models and manipulatives.

Hands-On Math for Elementary and Middle Years

The Golden Triangle Curriculum Cooperative (GTCC) is offering this event as part of their 2021 Summer Institute.

The use of hands-on math games has been well documented as an effective teaching strategy to engage students as they learn and master math concepts. This course will not only provide you with the knowledge, skills, and expertise to successfully implement hands-on math games into your classroom routine but will also provide you with a multitude of teaching strategies you can easily employ for in-person, in-person but physically distanced, as well as virtual instruction. The math games taught will use playing cards and dice or can easily be adapted to use cards and dice. Participants will also learn three simple ways to differentiate any of the math games to make them easier or more challenging depending on the grade level or individual needs of the students. Focus concepts include: number sense, place value, math fact strategies for addition and multiplication, single-digit & multi-digit operational fluency, mixed operations and order of operations, math expressions and equations, beginning algebra, simple fractions, fraction equivalency, simple operations with fractions, coordinate geometry, graphing, and probability. A comprehensive handout will be provided to include game boards, rules, follow-up math journal questions and assessment.

Visit the GTCC website for more information about this event and the 2021 Summer Institute course offerings.
