Middle School Math Teachers,

Below is information about UEN classes for teaching middle school math.

Please see email below for information.  Even though the email say “Elementary Mathematics” it is for 6th grade math and 8th grade math.

Subject: [SMECC Secondary] Summer Online Professional Learning Opportunities in Secondary Mathematics


Please join us for the Summer USBE online courses in Elementary Mathematics. Courses begin May 10, 2018 and registration is now available through UEN at this link<https://www.uen.org/development/usbe/math/index.shtml>. Summer semester 2018 is May 10 – August 1.

Courses available for enrollment:

  *   Magnifying 6th Grade Mathematics
  *   Magnifying 8th Grade Mathematics
For more information on each course, please see below:

Magnifying 6th Grade Mathematics

  This course highlights connections between sixth grade standards and standards from grades below and beyond sixth grade. Participants will focus on understanding how particular sixth grade standards build conceptual understandings that support future learning while other standards are a procedural culmination of previous grades.

   Math, at all levels, should be taught conceptually with the use of various representations such as concrete models, drawings and diagrams, and equations. This course demonstrates the use of such representations and offers participants the opportunity to engage in creating their own models. Participants will gain ideas for engaging students in activities that develop positive attitudes and dispositions, build essential understandings, and promote a growth mindset with regard to mathematics.

·               Online, 1.0 SUU or USOE credit hour.

·               Instructor: Rebecca Elder (Relder at murrayschools.org<mailto:Relder at murrayschools.org> )

Magnifying 8th Grade Mathematics

Eighth grade is an essential part of students’ middle school mathematical experience. In the course, Magnifying 8th grade Mathematics, we will take a deep look into what makes 8th grade mathematics unique and the essential understandings that every student needs to leave 8th grade knowing to be confident in high school mathematics.  We will identify key differences between the 8th grade and 9th grade concepts so that math educators are familiar with the separation between the two grade levels.  We will also connect prior learning from 7th grade mathematics and discuss how 8th grade teachers can use this to help their student’s become successful in learning the 8th grade core.

·               Online, 1.0 SUU or USOE credit hour.

·               Instructor: Rachel Rolf (Rachel.rolf at slcschools.org<mailto:Rachel.rolf at slcschools.org> )
