Dear colleagues,

I thought this online course might be of interest to some of the
subscribers, particularly in light of recent discussions on how to teach
fractions and the underlying concepts.



Number Sense: Teaching About Parts and Wholes
April 12 to May 21, 2010 (12-hour course)

Instructor: Jean Stephens

Teaching students how to use estimation, mental math, benchmarking, and
calculators will enhance their conceptual understanding of numbers and what
numbers represent. This course focuses on helping adult students develop
number sense by addressing two key questions: When is it necessary to have
an exact answer, and when is an estimate sufficient? When calculation is
necessary, which tool is appropriate to use? This course examines how
students develop and apply number sense and provides numerous teaching
strategies and activities that you can apply to your teaching right away.
