This course will focus on the importance and relevance of mathematics prior to Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry as well as emphasizing the language of Algebra, solving equations and inequalities, linear functions, non-linear functions, data interpretation and probability. Critical thinking skills will be explored. Participants will use multi-representational approaches to look at problems analytically, graphically, numerically, and verbally. They will explore internet websites and various forms of technology to increase comprehension and be introduced to hands-on activities that will supplement and enhance their teaching techniques. There will be discussions about best practices and strategies to successfully implement inquiry-based learning activities. Participants will share ideas and best practices and be asked to present at least one of the best practices they use in their classrooms with the rest of the class.)
