Middle Math Institutes: 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 institute is one of four in the CMSE Middle Math Institutes. Educators who complete all four institutes will be eligible to receive a Middle Level Mathematics (901) Supplemental Endorsement.
