Developing Number Sense Course Grades 3-5
The reflections from the participants discussed shifts in understanding of the mathematics and in teaching practice. The following quotes exemplify trends in feedback:
"This class was a gift, not only to me, but also to my students. I feel like I have a renewed investment in math."
"This course has had a profound impact on my professional practice. I am developing an understanding of what it means for students to develop a deep understanding of numbers."
"I had a wonderful experience completing the Developing Number Sense course. The push toward common core forces educators to have a deeper understanding of the base 10 number system and multiplicative processes, and the ideas shared in this workshop have given me a great picture of what kind of culture I would like to create in my classroom as we move forward in common core."
