Anyone Can Learn Math Series

The following four course series entitled **ANYONE CAN LEARN MATH** is designed to help teachers develop the tools needed to make math accessible to all students.

- EDUO 9521: Stress Free Math
- EDUO 9522: Math Made Easy
- EDUO 9523: Learning Math in Groups
- EDUO 9524: Learn Math Through Writing

Math Made Easy provides a foundation for the other three courses, but it is **NOT** a prerequisite. Math Made Easy, Learning Math in Groups, and Stress Free Math all require a single book entitled Math for Humans by Mark Wahl that may be ordered at www.markwahl.com/. The fourth class, Learning Math through Writing, requires a different book entitled Writing in Math Class by Marilyn Burns which is available at Amazon.com and other bookstores.

Understanding and Integrating Common Core Practices for Math Series

Actualize the CCSS of Mathematical Practice (MP) in your instruction. Define the Standards of Mathematical Practice within the context of your grade level standards, plan learning experiences, and develop authentic methods of assessment.

* “Multiplication”* gives greater meaning to multiplication concepts through interactive activities that the teacher may use with their whole class or in learning centers with small groups. The activities are consistent with common core standards and can easily be adapted to the needs of all students. (Most of the activities have extensions or modifications that allow the teacher to “tailor” the materials to the needs of their students.)

The course is structured so that the teacher can choose the assignments they want to accomplish depending on the number of units (1, 2, or 3) they are taking, or select the assignments most appropriate for the students they are teaching. **1 Credit/Unit **(staff training component, 4 student activities 1 extension, 1 reflection) **2 Credits/Units **(staff training component, 7 student activities 3 extensions, 2 reflections) **3 Credits/Units **(staff training component, 10 student activities 5 extensions, 4 reflections)

Not everyone can learn math by working independently, especially if they already struggle with the subject. Some students need to interact with others while learning. It should also be noted that the new Common Core State Standards requires students to be able to solve problems while working with others. The content in **Learning Math in Groups** is design to give teachers the skills needed to implement cooperative learning while teaching math. Doing so will help move their curriculum more inline with the new standards as well as reach the students that require a more social approach to learning.

There are many students who learn best while utilizing language. Writing is an integral part of utilizing language and infusing writing into your math curriculum will help all students truly learn the concepts. It should also be noted that writing across the curriculum is an important aspect of the Common Core State Standards. The content learned in Learn Math Through Writing will help teachers integrate writing into their math curriculum. Doing so will help move their curriculum more inline with the new standards as well as significantly improve student learning.
