Math & Numeracy

Adult Numeracy Instruction-Professional Development Institute 2 (ANI)

The overall vision of Adult Numeracy Instruction Professional Development (ANI-PD) is to increase the capacity of teachers, programs, and states to provide high-quality math instruction in Adult Basic Education programs. The mathematical content of this two-day ANI-PD Institute, the second of three, consists of and Algebra and Number and Operation Sense with Integers. Various analyses and representations of data sets require comparing and understanding rational numbers in the form of fractions, decimals, and percentages.

Deeper Learning Through Questioning-Math (TEAL)

This facilitated online course focuses on both teacher questioning and student self-questioning, exploring questioning as a powerful teaching approach. When math teachers ask higher-order questions and give students opportunities to think critically and to develop deep explanations, learning is enhanced. Equally important as teacher questions are student self-questions. Self-questioning can guide learning and help students monitor their progress.

Adult Numeracy Instruction-Professional Development Institute 3 (ANI)

The overall vision of Adult Numeracy Instruction: Professional Development (ANI-PD) is to increase the capacity of teachers, programs, and states to provide high-quality math instruction in Adult Basic Education programs. The mathematical content of this two-day ANI-PD Institute, the last of three, consists of algebra and number and operation sense with integers. Connections between algebraic thinking and representations (such as words, diagrams, tables, graphs, and equations) are used to make sense of what the symbols mean and to make decisions and predictions in contextual situations.

Infographics: Developing a Critical Mindset Towards Data

An infographic is a visual image, such as a chart or diagram, used to represent information or data. Understanding infographics and data visualization is an increasingly important skill in the 21st century. This workshop is designed to increase adult education practitioners’ comfort and skill with introducing data and statistics to learners. Participants will be introduced to infographics and how to evaluate infographics using a critical mindset based on a foundational knowledge of data and statistics.

Strategy Instruction-Math (TEAL)

Strategy instruction is a student-centered and research-based approach to teaching students how to learn. One of the most effective instructional approaches for adults with learning disabilities, strategy instruction centers on helping students acquire the tools and techniques that efficient learners use to understand and learn new material or skills, integrate this new information with what they already know, and recall the information or skill later, even in a different situation or place.

Effective Lesson Planning-Math (TEAL)

In this facilitated online course, participants will learn techniques to make the most of planning time and maximize collaboration with peers. Planning is critical in identifying appropriate action steps to help one effectively reach a goal. Lesson plans help instructors set learning objectives, and they provide a road map by which instructors can organize content, materials, time, instructional strategies, and assistance in the classroom. They also represent a way to communicate to learners what they will learn and how they will be assessed.

First Steps in Preparing for College-Level Math: Math Strategies for Success (Part 2)

This training supports participants in gaining instructional strategies that build on conceptual understanding and strengthen the mathematical foundation that adult learners will need to succeed in higher-level mathematics. The training builds upon content introduced in the First Steps in Preparing for College-Level Math: Using Soft Skills for Success training.

Adult Numeracy Instruction-Professional Development Institute 1 (ANI)

The overall vision of Adult Numeracy Instruction: Professional Development (ANI-PD) is to increase the capacity of teachers, programs, and states to provide high-quality math instruction in Adult Basic Education programs. The mathematical content of this two-day ANI-PD Institute, the first of three, consists of: number and operation sense with whole numbers and money; proportional reasoning; and geometry and measurement.

First Steps in Preparing for College-Level Math: Using Soft Skills for Success (Part 1)

This training supports participants in gaining skills and strategies for teaching “soft skills” to adult learners. The soft skills and strategies selected are specific to skills that are necessary for success in the college-level math classroom. This training provides the foundational content for the First Steps in Preparing for College-Level Math: Math Strategies for Success training.

Open Math--Open Resources: Engage Adult Learners for 21st-Century Skills (OER)

This facilitated online course will help math teachers find quality Open Educational Resources for the adult education classroom, evaluate them for appropriate classroom use, and assess their effectiveness in meeting learning objectives. The course will also provide teachers with ideas and resources for instructional strategies to introduce and engage adult students in learning math. Prerequisite: Open Your Classroom with Open Education Resources (TL07VS)
