Professor: Dr. Don Jordan
Graduate Credits: 3
Course Code: EDTR 5210

  • Description

    Product Description

    This online recertification course provides experiences that prompt thoughts about learning. Through the course, we surface new theories about learning and enhances teaching. We investigate techniques to effectively teach Geometry for grades 6 – 12. The course also provides a content refresher component and connects with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards.

    Geometry teachers will find this course useful in helping them:

    • Build new mathematical knowledge through problem solving
    • Recognize reasoning and proof as fundamental aspects of mathematics
    • Organize and consolidate mathematical thinking through communication
    • Analyze and evaluate mathematical thinking and strategies of others
    • Review and examine how the effective teaching of mathematics requires understanding what students
      need to know and need to learn
    • Review certain content areas of Geometry
    • Analyze characteristics and properties of two and three-dimensional geometric shapes
      and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships (NCTM Standard)
    • Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other
      representational systems (NCTM Standard)
    • Apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations (NCTM
    • Use visualizations, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems (NCTM Standard)

    Geometry: Understanding How to Teach Geometry Grades 6-12 is part of the course offerings of self-paced, online science courses intended for teacher recertification. This course awards 3 graduate credit hours.

    What students are saying about this class

    This class was great because it was flexible and worked with my chaotic schedule.
