Full course description
Standard for Mathematical Practice #1 states that students should learn to “make sense of problems and persevere in solving them”. You will observe, annotate, and discuss a scenario in which students are working on finding a circle tangent to two intersecting lines. In the scenario, students run into difficulties finding the circle and have to persevere by "considering analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution." After considering various ways the teacher could support SMP #1, you will have the opportunity to try implementing the SMP with your own students and receive feedback from an online facilitator. The course will award 5 SCECHs upon completion.
