Making Math Real: Fractions, Decimals & Advanced Place Value
12-Day Course | 9:00am to 5:00pm daily
Registration Fee: $1999 for tuition & course reader
9.5 optional academic units [see below]
COURSE REQUIREMENT: All students who enroll in this course must have taken the Making Math Real: Overview course prior to enrolling. PREREQUISITE NOTE: This 12-day Fractions course fulfills the prerequisite for taking the Pre-Algebra course.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Making Math Real is a developmental program wherein each current mathematical development directly builds the foundation for the next. Continuing the development of the 2 strands presented in the Making Math Real: Overview, this 12-day course provides the essential bridge linking the synthesis of the 4 operations and the 400 math facts to algebraic processing and development. Fractions and their related applications are required tools for successful mathematical processing through calculus.
This course provides systematic, incremental, multisensory structured methods making fractions, decimals, and advanced place value meaningful and accessible for all students. It is designed for educational therapists, special educators, and elementary and secondary classroom teachers. Parents and those who consider themselves non-math majors are especially encouraged to enroll.
Topics include comprehensive methods for teaching full units in:
- Advanced place value: including standard form, word form, expanded form and exponent form through the billions
- Fractions: including the four concepts, the 4 operations through mixed fractions, comparing and ordering, number theory, and fractions on the number line
- Decimals: including reading and writing decimals, the 4 operations through mixed decimals, comparing and ordering, and decimals on the number line.
Extension and enrichment activities for each unit are presented. Extensive color-coding is a critical element of the program. Please bring 4 colored pens or pencils in blue, green, red and black.
