Engage your students in math and real-world problem-solving
To thrive in 21st-century life or science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers, students need to be engaged by math while still in middle school. In this five-course graduate certificate that uses Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) content and process standards as a framework, you can learn practical strategies to engage students by applying mathematical concepts to solve real-world problems—from measuring objects to interpreting statistics. With an emphasis on the proportional reasoning and algebraic thinking critical to student success in high school, you will explore:
- Strategies for teaching number systems and operations; geometric thinking and measurement; functions and equations; and data, probability, and statistical reasoning.
- Problem-based activities to engage students in using common algorithms for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions and decimals.
- Algebraic reasoning, data, probability, and statistics as tools for resolving real-world problems in a variety of contexts.
- Multiple approaches to presenting mathematical concepts and addressing student misconceptions.
- You will increase your own expertise in mathematics as you gain the tools to foster your students’ real world skills and conceptual understanding of the subject.
Graduate certificate programs are non-degree programs in which certificates are issued upon completion of a series of courses in a specific area. Walden’s graduate certificate programs should not be confused with teacher certification programs and/or endorsements. Individuals seeking to meet teacher certification requirements must speak with an Enrollment Specialist.
After the first course, you can take one course at a time, earn your degree faster by taking two courses at once, or choose a combination of the two throughout the program to fit your changing needs.
