Whether you’re a new or an experienced math teacher, the Intermediate Mathematics AQ will help you develop or hone your teaching skills and build a pool of resources and professional contacts to support your practice. You’ll explore pedagogies and theories related to teaching (and learning) math at the Intermediate level — mathematical mindset, productive struggle, constructivism, the role of math learning in a student’s identity formation, considerations for the adolescent learner, and more — and collaboratively develop equitable and inclusive teaching strategies. You and your class colleagues will share your own experiences with learning and teaching math, reflect on ways to support student voice and agency in the math classroom, and explore approaches to creating intermediate math courses that foster innovation, curiosity and a love of math. You’ll examine such topics as designing engaging, collaborative and inclusive lesson plans, asking good questions, eliciting and using evidence of student thinking, integrating math with social justice education, using technological math tools, and facilitating strong partnerships in learning math. You’ll finish this course with valuable skills, confidence, resources, professional contacts and excitement about teaching Intermediate Math!
