Middle Math Institute: Number System, Ratio, & Proportion

In the middle grades, students are transitioning from a focus on computation to applying these skills to more real-world settings.  Understanding our number system, the properties of rational and irrational numbers, and making connections to previously learned skills will allow teachers to develop a coherent learning experience for middle grades students. Developing a flexible understanding of ratios, rates, and proportional relationships provide students with tools that can be applied in a variety of situations. 

This course is one of four courses in the CMSE Middle Math Institute. Educators who complete all four courses will be eligible to receive a Middle Level Mathematics (901) Supplemental Endorsement.

Registration Deadline: September 19, 2021
