A revolution is underway in science classrooms. The demands of the new workplace and the ready access to information afforded by new technologies have radically changed the way we define a scientifically literate society.
More than ever teachers need professional development that provides them with the resources they need and empowers them to take the action required to build classrooms where the next generation of scientifically literate students will flourish.
Sequences and Series will challenge us to think very carefully about
"infinity." What does it mean to add up an unending list of numbers?
How can an infinite task result in a finite answer? These questions
lead us to some very deep concepts—but also to some powerful
computational tools which are used not only in math but in many
Developing mastery in establishing and maintaining a rich learning
environment is one of the great joys of being a teacher. This course
will provide high leverage strategies, resources, and support for
professional growth so that you can provide students with the engaging,
safe environment essential for student learning. This course is aligned
to the needs of Secondary Grade teachers (6-12 grade, usually teaching multiple sections of the same content area, like math, fine arts, science, etc. to students 12 years and older).
