Empowering Pre-Service & New Math Teachers to Use the Common Core Practice Standards


Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 11.57.45 AMHow prepared are the K-12 teachers of tomorrow to inspire the next generation of young mathematicians?  In this webinar for the edWeb.net Adaptive Math Learning community, attendees learned how essential it is for pre-service teachers to learn, develop, and model the Standards for Mathematical Practice to improve learning for their future students. Ben Braun, Associate Professor of Mathematics at the University of Kentucky, and Tim Hudson, Senior Director of Curriculum Design at DreamBox Learning, discussed ways to ensure that pre-service teachers start their careers understanding how mathematical proficiency requires more than simply content knowledge.  Tim and Ben shared ideas for K-12 school leaders and mentor teachers who are responsible for new teacher induction, as well as, implications for college and university faculty teaching both math methods and content courses.  They also discussed potential disconnects between pre-service content and methods courses and also eventual in-service expectations, while providing examples of math problems to engage pre-service and new teachers.  View the webinar to better understand how to use the Standards for Mathematical Practice.
