Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching: Exploring the tasks of the EML

Ended Jul 25, 2020

Sorry! The enrollment period is currently closed. Please check back soon.

Full course description

Join Jason Brasel for this asynchronous session focused on mathematical content and adaptation of tasks.

One of the core features of the EML has been the use of rich mathematical tasks. This session will enable teachers to focus on a few of these tasks, and explore them in depth through the lens of mathematical knowledge for teaching. We, therefore, will consider: 

  1. what mathematical knowledge is entailed in teaching with these tasks, 

  2. possible extensions and modifications to the tasks for different grade levels, and 

  3. how the tasks connect to and support children’s learning of Common Core content and practice standards. 


This strand will have a significant asynchronous component during which participants work on solving math tasks.
