## Outcomes

Content and Concepts – At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

• Learn how concepts of counting and cardinality develop in early grades.
• Recognize the relationship between counting and a student’s deep understanding of numbers.
• Develop an understanding of how counting supports place value, composing and decomposing, and how numbers relate to one another.
• Connect counting strategies students use to how students solve addition and subtraction problems.

Pedagogical Content Knowledge – At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

• Recognize that how students learn and work with math has a strong impact on what they learn about math.
• Apply and connect the Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract (CPA) sequence and strategies to build an understanding of numbers.
• Recognize the importance of varied and consistent practice with models, explanations, number relations, and counting.
• Focus on equitable practices which provide access for all students to reach proficiency with mathematics in grades K–2.
• Learn strategies to address common challenges.
• Gain ideas for activities you can use in the classroom.
• Connect to valuable resources to enhance your knowledge and provide additional ideas and activities for teaching and learning.

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

• Understand the progression of fraction concepts through multiple grade levels.
• Recognize the connections between whole number and fraction concepts and procedures.
• Recognize the connections within fraction concepts and procedures.
• Identify, connect, and understand how to use multiple representations of fractions (concrete, visual/representational, and abstract) to teach fraction concepts and operations.
• Access physical, digital, and visual models of fractions as means to make fraction concepts clear for students.
• Understand strategies to address common misconceptions with fractions.
• Connect content standards and the Standards for Mathematical Practices to the teaching and learning of fractions.
