Pre-Calculus: Instruction Enrichment and Content Review for Educators
Professor: Kerry Ravan
This online teacher recertification course is designed to provide high school educators with the opportunity to investigate different resources to enhance their current teaching practices. The selected resources for this course will highlight different pedagogies and techniques which can be used to more effectively teach Pre-Calculus. The course will also provide a broad overview of the content knowledge necessary to effectively teach Pre-Calculus and will depend heavily on standards and resources developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) which provided the underpinnings for the new CCSSM.
High School teachers will find this course useful in helping them:
- Investigate a variety of problems and examine how they relate to different teaching and learning strategies
- Learn investigative and project-based learning experiences which lead to discovering mathematical concepts, connections, and associations
- Explore how to better incorporate technology into the Pre-Calculus classroom
- Connect how modeling can link mathematical concepts to other content areas
- Uncover various methods and strategies to make mathematics real and relevant to students
- Explore how to build new mathematical knowledge through problem solving
- Review the essential mathematical material of Pre-Calculus
Pre-Calculus: Instruction Enrichment and Content Review for Educators is part of the OnlineEducationCourses.org 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
I took this course for recertification. It helped me review concepts which I had not addressed in several years. The information contained in the course has given me some new approaches for helping my students to learn and understand mathematics.
The class is informative. It makes a teacher think not only about how to solve problems, but how to make problems more meaningful when solving.
This was a very helpful course. I had not practiced much of the mathematics since high school and am now more confident going into the year ready to teach PreCalculus.
